Slow Cooker Texas Trash Party Mix

Kathy Sterling


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!
