Slow Cooker Bar-B-Q Party Mix

Recipe by  

"When you're planning a party, and your oven is going to be full, try this party mix in the slow cooker. Tastes as good but doesn't take up oven space! You may make a larger batch, but cooking time will need to be increased. If you like your bar-b-que party mix more bar-b-q-y, try increasing the liquid by 1/2 or double. Keep in mind that doing this may increase cooking time. Serve immediately or store in air tight containers."

  1. Mix corn cereal, wheat cereal, rice cereal, cheese-flavored crackers, and pretzels in a gallon-sized resealable bag; seal and toss to mix.
  2. Stir butter, barbeque sauce, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt together in a bowl. Pour half the butter mixture into the cereal mixture; seal bag and shake until well combined. Pour remaining liquid mixture into cereal mixture; seal bag and shake until cereal mixture is well coated. Pour coated cereal mixture into the slow cooker.
  3. Cook on Low, stirring every 15 minutes, for 30 minutes. Turn temperature to High and cook for 15 minutes. Stir and cook uncovered until coating has cooked into cereal mixture, 20 to 25 more minutes. Spread party mixture onto a baking sheet until cooled and dried.

  • Cook's Note:
  • Bacon salt can be found in some grocery stores or ordered online. And the added hickory flavor it adds really makes you feel like you're eating bar-b-que! If bacon salt is not available, use your favorite seasoned salt, or use garlic and onion salt instead of powder.
  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

I only made one change--I used vegetable oil instead of butter. I chose to bake this in the oven instead of use my crockpot. Baked at 250*, I let this bake for an hour, stirring every fifteen minutes. I did not try this myself but the kids RAVED about it. They ate half a batch in one sitting!

I did not care for this recipe. Came out too mushie--even tried to broil in the oven to get rid of sogginess--didn't work.

I wanted to love this recipe. However, I found that the cereal just wasn't as crispy as it is when baked in the oven, rather some of it was a little chewy. The barbecue flavor was good, but pretty light. I might try it again, but if I do I will bake it in the oven rather than using the slow cooker.
