Slow Cooker Cheesy Party Mix – We’ve Got You Covered #SundaySupper

Slow Cooker Cheesy Party Mix|Hot Momma's Kitchen Chaos

For #SundaySupper this week “We’ve Got You Covered” – in many, many ways.  The way I chose to “cover” you is by making something in a covered pot.  My favorite covered pot.  The crock pot. So far I have made two party mix recipes in the slow cooker, a Bar-B-Q mix and a Caramel mix.  I’ve been thinking about this one for a long time.   Cheese Flovored Chex® is one of my favorite snacks, next to the original one, but I haven’t been sure how I would make it.  I searched and searched for a cheese powder but other than in bulk from a food storage distributor, I couldn’t find any.  I found bacon cheddar or nacho popcorn topping, but not a plain cheddar.  So I decided to take apart a macaroni and cheese package, use the cheese powder from that and save the macaroni for some other time. The recipe starts with 9 cups of dry ingredients.  I use 2 cups each Rice Chex® and Corn Chex®, 1 1/2 cup each Wheat Chex® and Goldfish® Crackers, and 1 cup each peanuts and pretzel sticks.  Feel free to use any mixture of these items or others you like and think would be appropriate.

Then there is the liquid mixture which I made out of 6 Tbsp. melted butter, 2 Tbsp. Worchershire sauce, 1/2 tsp. onion powder, 1/2 tsp. garlic powder and 1 cheese package from a macaroni and cheese package.  You are welcome to add a little kick if you like it with some paprika or red pepper flakes.  When you mix this all together be sure to combine well so that all of the cheese lumps get disolved.

Not a lovely color I know, but it looks OK after you pour it on the dry ingredients. I did that next and tossed it all in my slow cooker.

Slow Cooker Cheesy Party Mix - We've Got You Covered #SundaySupper
This cheesy party mix uses the cheese package out of a box of mac and cheese. Just use the macaroni another time.
Recipe type: Snack
  • 2 cups Crispy Corn Cereal (like Corn Chex®)
  • 2 cups Crispy Rice Cereal (like Rice Chex®)
  • 1½ cups Crispy Wheat Cereal (like Wheat Chex®)
  • 1½ Goldfish® crackers (or similar cheese crackers)
  • 1 cup pretzel stick
  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 6 Tbsp. melted butter
  • 2 Tbsp. Worchershire sauce
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • 1 package powdered cheese mix from a box of macaroni and cheese
  1. Combine the first 6 ingredients in the crock of your slow cooker.
  2. Combine butter, Worchershire sauce, garlic and onion powders, and cheese powder and mix well to remove lumps.
  3. Pour liquid over dry mix and toss together until all of the dry ingredients are coated with the cheese sauce.
  4. Put the slow cooker on high.
  5. Cook for one hour, stirring every 20 minutes.
  6. Remove mixture onto aluminum foil to dry. Be sure to spread it out and allow it to dry completely as it may still be moist from cooking in the slow cooker.
  7. Store any uneaten portion in an air tight container.

Once this had cooled my son took one bite and said, “Yum!”  That makes me a happy mom.
