Has anyone else been curious if you can make Homemade Chex Mix in the Crock Pot?
After seeing a few pins on Pinterest where people used their crock pot, I was too! So, this past year when my hubby mixed up his annual big batch, we decided to bake half in the oven and cook the other half in the slow cooker.
Now, y'all know I'm a big fan of Mrs. Potts, but this time it just wasn't a win for me. We mixed everything up according to our regular recipe, then dumped half in the crockpot and baked the other half in our oven.
The oven clearly (overwhelmingly!) won.
The batch made in our slow cooker tasted almost stale, so during the last 30 minutes we took the lid off which seemed to help a bit. However, it just wasn't as good, and we ended up throwing most of it away.
If you've had better luck making Chex Mix in your crock pot I'd love to hear about it, but I'm thinking we'll stick with the oven from now on for our Homemade Chex Mix. 🙂
Have you tried Chex Mix in the slow cooker before? How did it work for you?
