This classic party mix is changed up by both cooking it in the slow cooker instead of the oven and all the ingredients are gluten-fee. It's easy to prepare and perfect to have on hand for snacking or entertaining.
For those wishing to make a GLUTEN version: substitute gluten cheese crackers and pretzels. All other ingredients are naturally gluten-free.

Spray the insert of a 6 quart slow cooker with non-stick spray. Add the Chex, crackers, pretzels, almonds, peanuts and stir to mix together.
Combine the melted butter, Worcestershire sauce, paprika and garlic powder; whisk to combine. Pour over the dry ingredients in the slow cooker and mix to fully coat.
Place three layers of paper towels between the top of the slow cooker and the lid (the paper towels will extend outside the slow cooker opening). Cook on LOW for 1 1/2 hours, stirring the ingredients from the bottom of the slow cooker up every 30 minutes to prevent burning.
After 1 1/2 hours remove the lid and paper towel and cook for an additional 20 minutes, stirring as needed to prevent burning and to combine the ingredients.
Remove from the slow cooker and spoon onto a couple of baking sheets or parchment paper on a countertop to cool fully before serving.
