gluten-free slow cooker Chex mix

This is not only a NYE staple and Game Day favorite, but great for any group that needs a snack.  So... that's pretty much all the people and all the events. HAHAHA!

Seriously, it's super easy to whip together and it is darn tasty.


10 cups GF Chex cereal (I use equal parts corn and rice Chex)

1 cup GF Cheerios

2 cups GF pretzels (I like Glutino (sticks or twists))

1 box GF cheddar crackers (I like Van’s)

1 cup cashews, macadamia, almonds or nut of choice

3/4 cup (1 & ½ sticks) butter, melted & hot

2 well-rounded tablespoons GF seasoned salt (check the label!)

1 tablespoon Kosher salt*, optional

¾ cup Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon garlic powder

2 teaspoons chili powder (optional)

* If you’re using a “clean” seasoned salt, you may find it’s not as salty as the big-label brands.  I like my salty snacks to be, well, salty, so I find I need to add another tablespoon of Kosher salt to get that itch scratched.


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together butter and seasoned salt until the salt is dissolved.

  2. Stir in the Worcestershire sauce until combined.

  3. Add about ½ cereal, pretzels, crackers, and nuts to the bowl of a slow cooker.

  4. Drizzle about ½ the sauce evenly over the top of the cereal mixture.

  5. Repeat with the other ½ of everything

  6. Toss for about 1 minute, or until the mixture is evenly combined.

  7. Cover** and slow cook on low for 3 hours, stirring every 45-minutes*** so that the mixture does not burn.

  8. Spread the mixture out onto a couple baking sheets or parchment paper in an even layer until it cools to room temperature and gets crunchy.

  9. Serve, or store in a sealed container for up to 3 weeks.

** Place a towel or a couple of layers of paper towels just under the lid of the slow cooker to collect the condensation. Keep in mind this could be a fire hazard, so do so ONLY when you can keep eyes on everything.

*** Be careful not to drip any condensation from the lid onto the mixture when you are stirring.
