Maple Bacon Party Mix

Maple Bacon Party Mix

  • 2 cups corn chex
  • 2 cups rice chex
  • 2 cups wheat chex
  • 1 cup peanuts, salted and roasted
  • 6 strips bacon, cooked extra crispy and chopped
  • 4 T. butter, melted
  • 4 T. maple syrup
  • 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon cayenne (depending on how spicy you like it)
  • 1-1 1/2 teaspoons Maldon (any salt will do but if you are using table salt reduce the quantity)


Combine the cereals, peanuts, and cayenne in a large, microwavable-safe bowl.

In a small bowl combine the butter and maple syrup. Add the butter mixture to the cereal and stir very well. 

Microwave on high for three minutes stirring every minute to prevent the sugars to scorch. Add the bacon and salt. 

Stir. Let cool. Serve.


  1. Do you know if you can make this in the oven? We don't have a microwave.

    1. I am sure you could. We don't have a microwave either. Probably at 350 or 375 and shake it often, maybe like 10 or 15 minutes? That is just a guess though. I would just keep a close eye on it. It looks amazing!

  2. I am TOTALLY making this for hubby's birthday party!

    Next on your bacon list: bacon ice cream.

    I made this for a bacon-loving priest friend and everyone at the party loved it. It is delicious!

    Thx for sharing these great recipes.... :o) Becky
