Slow Cooker Texas Trash Party Mix

Kathy Sterling Recipe

By Kathy Sterling Kster2033

Ever since I can remember my mother made Texas Trash/Party Mix. I know she found the original recipe on the box of Chex Cereal as I have used it also.

It was a snack we all enjoyed year round but especially during the holidays. She always made it as directed and I would pick out the chex cereals as my favorite. I don't know why I never though of using just the things I liked, but it never donned on me.

I recently saw that you could make it in a slow cooker and I thought that was the perfect idea. After researching it online, I noticed people saying put what you like in I do!

Directions Step-By-Step

In a small pan melt butter and mix in Worcestershire Sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, seasoned salt. Stir to make sure all ingredients are dissolved.
Place remaining ingredients in a slow cooker and mix well. Slowly stir in butter mixture, coating all ingredients well.
Cook on low, stirring every 30 minutes for 3 hours.
*Note: You can add whatever ingredients you prefer. I do not like pretzels but that is one that many people add. You can put in different types of nuts or crackers, let your imagination run wild.
If you like spicy food, hot sauce or cayenne pepper could also be added. Just make it to your liking.
