Homemade Crock Pot Chex Mix
This gluten free Homemade Crock Pot Chex Mix is made in the slow cooker so it's super easy! It's smokey hickory and sweet honey mustard make it addicting!
Servings 16 Servings (about 1/2 cup)
- 2 Cups Mini gluten-free pretzels
- 2 Cups Rice Chex
- 2 Cups Corn Chex
- 1 1/4 Cups Cheerios
- 1 Cup Roasted salted peanuts
- 1/4 Cup Ghee, melted (or butter/vegan butter)
- 1/4 Cup Honey
- 2 Tbsp Prepared yellow mustard
- 1 Tbsp Hickory Liquid Smoke
- 1 tsp Sea Salt
- 2 1/2 Tbsp Dry mustard powder
Combine the pretzels, Chex, cheerios and peanuts in the bottom of a large slow cooker (mine is 7 quarts) and mix well.
Whisk all the remaining ingredients, except the dry mustard powder, in a small bowl until well combined. pour over the mixture and toss until evenly coated.
Sprinkle on the dry mustard and stir until evenly coated.
Place a thin kitchen towel over top of the slow cooker and then place the lid over it (the towel absorbs the condensation so your mix isn't soggy!) Cook for 5-6 hours on low heat, stirring every hour, or until all the liquid has evaporated from the bottom of the slow cooker. The mixture will feel a bit wet when it's done, but it crisps up once cool! (mine took the full 6 hours)
Once cooked, spread into an even layer on 2 cookie sheet and let cool COMPLETELY to crisp up!
