Buffalo Chex Mix and Game Day Recipes

Do you have your Super Bowl line up of game day snacks? This Buffalo Chex Mix is oh so easy and can be assembled and ready to serve in 10 minutes! We’re fans of Buffalo flavored anything on game day, including Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad , Touchdown Buffalo Meatballs and Buffalo Popcorn .

I found Utz Football shaped pretzels at World Market to add to this snack mix for a fun addition for the Super Bowl, but any pretzel will work. Adjust the ingredients to your taste, adding some salted nuts, toasted sesame sticks, oyster crackers or whatever you like in a snack mix while watching the big game.

This Buffalo Chex Mix has a mild flavor and is not too spicy. I adjusted the seasoning adding more wing sauce after tasting for additional Buffalo flavor, so mix to your preference and crowd.

Here’s the starting lineup of ingredients:

Game Day Buffalo Chex Mix, recipe adapted from Frank’s RedHot®

Prep Time: 10 min Cook Time: 5 min

4 cups Wheat Chex™ cereal (I used Corn Chex)

2 cups Parmesan-flavored crackers (I used Cheez-It Duoz, Sharp Cheddar & Parmesan)

*3 Tbsp. FRANK’S RedHot® Buffalo Wings Sauce

1 packet ranch dressing mix

*For a more pronounced Buffalo flavor, increase the Buffalo wings sauce to 6 tablespoons and add 2 additional tablespoons of butter.

Mix cereals, crackers and pretzels in large microwaveable bowl set aside. In small microwaveable bowl, microwave butter on high about 40 seconds or until melted. Stir in hot sauce and seasonings. Pour over cereal mixture stir until evenly coated.

Microwave uncovered on high in 1 minute increments, for 5 – 6 minutes, stirring after each minute. Spread on paper towels to cool. Store in airtight container.

Recipe Summary

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup butter
  • ¼ cup white corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 cups crispy wheat cereal squares (such as Wheat Chex®)

Game Day Snack: Olive Oil Chex Mix

This healthy snack is quick to disappear at our house. Start a batch an hour before the kickoff and enjoy once the game begins!

Olive Oil Chex Mix is a perfect game day snack because:

  1. It uses extra virgin olive oil in place of margarine or butter
  2. It freezes easily - so make a double batch and save some for later
  3. It's savory and delicious

  • 3 cups Cheerios
  • 3 cups Wheat Chex
  • 2 cups Pretzels
  • 2 cups Cheese Crackers
  • 1 cup Peanuts, unsalted
  • 1 cup Almonds, raw
  • 1 cup Robust Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 tablespoons Seasoned Salt (We use Slavo Gourmet Seasoning )
  • 1 tablespoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder

Put first six ingredients into a large bowl. In a separate bowl combine olive oil, seasoned salt, garlic powder, onion powder. Stir well and drizzle over dry ingredients. Mix well to coat. Spread contents on a cookie sheet. Roast uncovered in 250 degrees F oven for 45 minutes. Stir about every 20 minutes while roasting. After it's finished, let cool. Store in airtight containers.
