Cheesy Parmesan Chex Mix

I’ve been on a home improvement kick lately.  As much as I love my house, there’s a couple of rooms that need some final touches.  One, being our guest bedroom.  We have a bed, cute nightstand, cute lamp, a lovely reading chair, a gorgeous armoire, and a comfy area rug.  Only thing missing is accessories.  Sounds easy enough, right? Wrong.  In the past few day’s I’ve managed to purchase and return 3 different sets of bedding. Either nothing looks right or I’m being way too picky.  Mr. Weekly Bite thinks its the latter. The people that work the customer service desk at Home Goods know me & M by name now.

Amidst my decorating frustrations, I managed to satisfy a salty craving by whipping up some Cheesy Parmesan Chex Mix.  Chex Mix is one of those snacks I love, but always forget about.  There’s something about that salty crunch that’s addicting.

There’s also something about chex mix that reminds me of either college parties or bar food.  You know those bars that have little bowls of chex mix on the tables?

Anyways, this is one of the easiest recipes out there.  This salty crunchy snack can be yours in 6 easy steps…

Step 1:

Step 2:

Step 3: In a large bowl, combine:

I used Cheeze-Its because they’re Mr. Weekly Bite’s favorite 🙂

Step 5:

Step 6: Spread mixture evenly onto a large ungreased baking sheet.  Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes.  Stir mixture every 5 minutes while baking.

Remove from oven and let cool completely on baking sheet.  Store in an airtight container & enjoy 🙂

Major Warning!  This stuff is highly addicitive… Enjoy with caution.

Have a great weekend 🙂

    Looks so tempting….the only bad thing is that I may have to have a cocktail while enjoying this!

    As I was looking through the pictures I was thinking “addictive”… and since you said it it must be! Don’t think I could make this unless we had a ton of people around to eat it lol.

    Oh this sounds delicious! Can’t wait to make it. I am afraid I might get as addicted to it as I am to Home Goods ;)!

    Mmmm this sounds like the perfect cheesy snack! I can imagine how addicting it must be, so I would only attempt this when there’s going to be a party – or else I might eat it all myself!

    Anything Chex related is highly addictive! I bet I could use nutritional yeast and a few other crackers…I am so making this! Good luck on finishing the room. I am picky too, so don’t feel bad. Have a great Friday Estela!

    Yum! If I weren’t on a health kick to get my butt back in gear, I would be making this stuff pronto.

    The sight of that melted buttery goodness is very beautiful. These would last for 5 minutes at my house.

    oooo did you come up with this recipe on your own? Sounds wonderful, I am a sucker for all things parmesan!

    Good luck with the bedroom! I know how hard that can be!!

    Its the basic recipe that’s on the Chex Cereal box. I changed up some of the ingredients, the cooking time, and added parmesan cheese 🙂

    My guest room has our old bedroom furnature, an old fake tree I don’t really like and any other thing sI have decided aren’t good enough for the rest of the house ;P Talk about lame!

    This sounds so good! I haven’t made chex mix in… well I don’t think I’ve ever made it. But I’ve definitely eaten it by the handful a bunch.

    I think I could become addicted to this mix:)
