This Slow Cooker Party Mix makes a great snack for the holidays, parties, or game day.
Hi folks. I am SO behind. In the midst of cooking a ton today I have also been to the barn, cleaned and returned all our horse stuff to the barn, done paperwork, gone over our finances and budget (scary!), done laundry (endless) and am cleaning out two closets (overkill).
Yup, I have issues.We're also in the process of putting two bookcases in the basement and I have to organize them. Yes, my books will be placed in alphabetical order by author then title. Yes I have serious issues.
Now you would think me being this OCD would mean my house is immaculate, trust me it is not. Well, not right now anyway.
It looks like a hurricane blew through. But by week's end it will be finished and ready for guests. I tend to like things to have a place.
Once it is chaos I tend to create more chaos and then by the end it looks stunning. Just getting there is difficult.
Party mix in a slow cooker, now that's just thinking outside the box. I love whoever came up with this idea. I have no idea who that person is but I want to marry them and have babies with them.
Now if that someone happened to be Timothy Oliphant then so be it. A deals a deal. I shall suffer through. It'll be hard but somehow I'll make it work. *giggles uncontrollably and stares at the call display waiting for it to say Timothy Oliphant*
Alrighty roo folks, so without further ado or silliness or craziness or rambling or carrying on or going on and on and on.....oh wait, I guess I just did all that.

Slow Cooker Party Mix
- 3 cups rice crackers
- 2 cups shreddies cereal
- 2 cups pretzel sticks
- 2 cups pecans
- ½ cup butter melted
- 4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- In your slow cooker combine crackers, cereal, pretzels and pecans. Stir.
- In the microwave, melt your butter for about a minute.
- Now in a bowl combine your butter, worcestershire sauce, salt, garlic powder and onion powder. Stir.
- Pour this butter mixture over the stuff in the slow cooker.
- Toss to coat it well. I just use a big wooden spoon. Try not to be too rough though.
- DO NOT COVER THE SLOW COOKER!!!
- Now turn your UNCOVERED slow cooker on high for 2 hours. Stir every 30 minutes or so.
- Now turn it down and cook UNCOVERED for another 2 to 4 hours on low. I found 2 hours sufficient. Stir every 30 minutes.
- Let cool.
- Store in an airtight container.
- Try not to eat all the pretzels while they are piping hot.

So cool! I was wondering how you could do this and not end up with a bunch of soggy pretzels. I've got to try this one!!!!
I just recently made party mix and would have not even thought of making it in a slow cooker. Thanks for sharing! This looks delicious.
YUM, yum! I can't make this or I'd eat it ALL! Great to know that you can make it in a slow cooker...you're a wealth of info between the giggles! I'm parked here waiting for all your weekend posts to roll in 🙂 xoxo
@Lizzy- Thanks and roflmao. I am unsure there will be any. Sick as a dog. Mini-me infected me. I still have shopping to do and need groceries but not sure I want to go out like this. Ugh!
I just might have to try this in the slow cooker. It does sound easier than the traditional oven method.
Kim: You passed your sick onto me.
Sick stomach, headache, equilibrium out of whack.
You are such a good friend!
Praying for everything to come right for you and your family.
Praying your New Year is full of blessings!
I read all reviews and apologize if I overlooked the answer to what I am going to ask. Rice crackers I can probably find but what is shreddies cereal. Looks like Chex mix but I might be wrong. I am assuming rice crackers are in the cracker aisle? Thanks to anyone who has the answer.
Hi Denise. Rice crackers are something my sis sent me. I think she buys them in the health food store. If you type in rice crackers into google search you can see pics of what they look like.You could use just mini regular crackers if you like, or mini rice crisps. Shreddies is a cereal here in Canada, they are made by Post.
What you gave me is awesome! Thanks! I am trying it this weekend. I am using a crock pot vs slow cooker so I hope it works.
I am so glad. Let me know how it turns out. They are the same thing other than the name so you should be okay. Let me know if you have any questions. I love helping out.
