Slow Cooker Gluten-Free Chex Party Mix

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.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups gluten-free Rice Chex
  • 3 cups gluten-free Corn Chex
  • 2 cups gluten-free Cheese Crackers (I used Van’s brand ‘Say Cheese’ thin cheese crackers)
  • 1 cups gluten-free Pretzels (I used Glutino brand)
  • 1 cup Smoked Almonds
  • 1 cup Cocktail Peanuts
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) Unsalted Butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Smoked Hot Paprika
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Garlic Powder

Instructions

  • 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.
