25 Craves of Christmas

Dec. 13: Buffalo Chex Mix

I think it's about time we added some salty snacks into the Christmas Craves mix. Spice up your holidays with Buffalo Chex Mix--one of my favorites snacks of the season! An instant hit, this crave will give any holiday party the kick it needs. *A personal tip: adding some Snyder's Hanover Buffalo Wild Wing Pretzels will send this snack mix above and beyond. Enjoy!

  • 6 cups of snack mix (we mixed pretzels, crackers, chex mix, etc.)
  • 5 tablespoons of butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons of Buffalo Wing Sauce (I prefer the Frank's brand)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 envelope of ranch salad dressing mix


  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together your choice of snack mix items – we used pretzels, small crackers and chex mix this time. But we mix it up each time – anything you like in a snack mix will work including nuts, cheese crackers, etc.
  3. In a small pan over low heat, melt the butter. Stir in the buffalo wing sauce and Worcestershire sauce.
  4. Drizzle the mixture over the snack mix and stir to coat evenly. Shake the seasoning envelope over the snack mix and toss to coat.
  5. Spread the snack mix out on a cookie sheet. Pop the pan in the oven for about 10 minutes.
  6. Allow to cool and then serve.
