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.

gluten-free slow cooker Chex mix


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.
