Cooking with Aubrey

Bagel Chex Mix

This time of year, I’ll head into the kitchen for some gift making. Gifts I’ve made in the past include; cookies, spiced nuts, body butter and spice blends. This chex mix would make a great hostess gift or make a double batch to keep it for yourself and serve at your next gathering. This addictive snack is a combination of crunchy, spicy, salty, and tangy goodness.

Bagel Chex Mix


  • 2 bagels (preferably pumpernickel) sliced into small thin rounds
  • 3 cups Chex mix (rice, wheat or corn variety)
  • 1 cup broken breadsticks
  • 1 cup broken pretzel sticks
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 6 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1 small onion, cut into 1 inch wedges
  • ¼ cup Worchester sauce
  • 1 Tbsp hot sauce
  • Freshly ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Arrange bagel rounds on a large rimmed baking sheet in a single layer and bake until crisp 10-12 minutes. Transfer them to a large bowl and add cereal, bread sticks, and pretzel sticks. Leave the oven on.
  2. Meanwhile in a small saucepan, combine butter, garlic and onion and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook until the garlic is just turning brown on the edges, about 15 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and strain the butter into a bowl (discard the solids). Whisk in Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce and ground pepper.
  4. Add the butter mixture to the dry mixture, toss to evenly coat, pour onto a baking sheet and spread it out into a single layer. Bake until crisp, about 25 minutes, stirring once midway through the baking. Cool and store in an airtight container for up to a week.
