I have the ultimate snack for you…Buffalo Cheddar Chex Mix!

And I do mean the ultimate.

It’s addicting.

And I’ve waited over a year to share the recipe.

Of course, I do know that’s just ridiculous. BUT this Chex Mix is just too perfect of a recipe for the Super Bowl…so I had to wait. I’m sorry for selfishly making this throughout the entire year and not even saying a word. I kind of feel bad now.

Stopping after just one handful is not possible.

If you are planning to make this for Super Bowl Sunday ( that really only a week from today?), I would make a double batch. It’s gonna go fast.

I could write more, but this recipe is so simple, I don’t even know what else to say. I could certainly just say over and over how amazingly good this is (it really really is!), but I feel like that gets just a tad boring. Or really just kind of obnoxious.


Just make it!

Time to snack.

**Oh, and I just have to mention…Backwards Day. It’s this Friday, January thirty-first and I could not be more pumped. Normally I do not pay attention to weird holidays like this, but my friends over at Bisquick are making things extra fun this year. They’re throwing a Backwards Day Brinner Bash! What’s a brinner bash? Basically, it’s a huge round-up of breakfast for dinner recipes that you just cannot pass up. All the recipes are amazing and I’m so excited for you guys to check out the pancakes I made for the bash. So be sure to head on over to the Brinner Bash this Friday. It is going to be good!

  1. I’m sorry, what?! I have to go to the grocery store today now because of you. I am blaming you for Sunday shopping.

  2. I want this right now! I LOVE buffalo flavor- I used to buy the buffalo pretzels all the time! I just might be making this next weekend.

  3. So smart! You must never stop thinking 🙂 My husband and I could finish this off in ten minutes flat — with not a crumb to spare..

  4. Holy crap that is amazing…totally making this soon. Hopefully sooner rather than later. Be sure to stop by my link party, Om Nom Nom Friday (even though it’s Sunday) and share your delicious treats 🙂

    Happy Blogging!

  5. This really is the ultimate snack!! I know I will not be able to stop eating this if and when I make it! I can already tell the pita chips will be my favorite part 🙂

  6. Good grief, how do you expect me to keep my hands out of this?! Let’s just say this is all I will be eating. Surely there is enough in here to justify it as lunch … and dinner … and midnight snack. Wow, does this look amazing or what?!

  7. I know nothing of the Super Bowl but we’ve been inhaling the winter XGames! This would be the perfect thing to crunch on while watching… Another great Tieghan recipe

  8. Shut the front door. This looks incredible! My boyfriend loves all things Chex mix and all things Frank’s (and so do I) so I need to make this immediately! Pinning now!

  9. I STILL haven’t ever had Chex mix–I know, I’m weird like that. But I’m all for the spicy buffalo sauce on top!! I bet this would be a huge hit.

  10. Ok, I’m gathering the ingredients and making this today – then another batch for Super Bowl – this looks amazing!

    1. I was wondering if you could tell me about the insulated sheet or two baking sheets stacked on one another – trick? I have never heard about that, and while following your recipes saw this tip.
      I did it, but if asked why…I wouldn’t have a decent argument. Haha.

      Thank you for the recipe. 🙂 pinned too.
