  • 3 cups Rice Chex
  • 2 cups Melba Roasted Garlic Snacks {or Bagel Chips} broken into pieces
  • 2 cups Mini Pretzel Twists
  • 2 cups Italian Four Cheese Cheez-Its
  • 1.5 cups Lightly Salted Whole Cashews
  • 1/2 cup Butter melted
  • 1 oz. Hidden Valley Ranch Mix packet or 3 Tbsp Buttermilk Ranch Dressing Mix
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • ½ tsp. Onion Powder
  • ½ tsp. Garlic Salt


  • Add Chex, Melba Snacks, Pretzels, Cheez-Its, and Cashews to Crock Pot, and stir well to combine.
  • In small bowl, combine Ranch Mix packet, Parmesan Cheese, Salt, Onion Powder, and Garlic Salt. Stir well to combine.
  • Pour seasoning mixture over snacks in Crock Pot, and stir well.
  • Then pour melted butter over snack mixture in Crock Pot, and stir well.
  • Cover Crock Pot with lid, and place a paper towel just under the lid to collect the condensation when cooking. {this will keep your Chex Mix nice and crispy.
  • Cook on LOW for 1.5 - 2 hours, or until done. Make sure to stir well at least every 30 minutes to avoid burning.
  • Once done, spread Chex Mix out on wax paper on the counter to cool. ENJOY!


I used 7 quart crock pot, but recipe can be cut in half and made in a smaller crock pot.
Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container to munch on during the week.
