  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 1 teaspoon yellow curry powder

  2. Heat butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
  3. Add Worcestershire sauce to the melted butter, celery salt, seasoned salt, liquid smoke, and curry powder. Stir well and simmer for 10 minutes to ensure all the seasonings have dissolved into the butter.

⏲️ Baking time

The key to a good batch of Chex mix is to bake it low and slow. That is why a crockpot is perfect.

Set your crockpot to low, then place a piece of paper towel on top of the cereal before putting the lid on. If you don’t do this, you will get too much condensation built up on the lid and make your slow cooker version soggy.

Bake for 3 hours. Be sure to stir the mixture every 30 minutes during the first two hours, then every 15 minutes during the last hour of cooking time. Your total time baking might vary according to your brand of crockpot.

Remove from slow cooker and allow to cool to room temperature before serving.
