Chex Mix Munchies are a classic treat that has been updated to make in a microwave oven. Before you know it, you’ll be enjoying this crunchy snack!
My Great Aunt used to make Chex Mix every year. It was a treat, as a young girl at Christmas time, to grab a big handful from what seemed like a never empty bowl of this snack when we visited her home.
My Great Aunt would make then bake her chex mix for hours before we arrived, then serve it to all of us hungry kids. That seems like a lot of work, so I am thankful for a much quicker method to make this delicious, classic snack!

How To Make These Chex Mix Munchies
Put ingredients in a large microwavable bowl. Bet you won’t even break into a sweat doing that!
Melt the butter in a small dish in the microwave.
Mix up the spices and Worcestershire sauce in a separate bowl. Add this mixture to the melted butter, and stir to combine.
Pour this mixture over the Chex mix munchies. Stir really well, to distribute sauce evenly over all the ingredients.
Microwave on high for 5-6 minutes, stirring mixture well every 2 minutes. When done, spread Chex mix munchies out on paper towels, so they can cool completely.
Once completely cool, store the Chex Mix Munchies in an airtight covered container. That’s it! See how easy it is to make this scrumptious, addictive snack?
