DIY Ranch Chex Mix

My Mom has been making her own chex mix for as long as I can remember. It was the perfect snack when we would spend the day at the shore (East Coast Jersey girl here, holla!) Since the holidays are right around the corner I thought it would be the perfect time to share her quick and easy recipe.

Favorite Snacks:

Additional Ingredients:
Hidden Valley Ranch Dip Mix
Vegetable Oil
Large mixing bowl
Microwave safe bowl
Gallon Ziploc bag
Cookie sheet

  • Mix all of your desired snacks together in a large bowl.
  • Separate about 4 cups into a smaller microwave safe bowl and pour 1.5 TBSP of oil in. With a spoon mix thoroughly.
  • Microwave for about 1 minute.
  • Once heated pour snacks into a Gallon Ziploc. Add desired amount of Hidden Valley Ranch Mix, we usually use about 1/4 of the packet. Use less if you prefer it weak or more if you like a strong bold flavor.
  • Shake well and pour mixture onto a cookie sheet to cool.
  • Continue process until all the snacks have been oiled, microwaved, and coated!
  • Store in an air tight container for a longer shelf life.
