Dill pickle flavored snacks, especially chips, are all the rage right now. The flavor gives you that salty and pickle taste that makes your mouth pucker, similar to salt and vinegar chips. Dill Pickle Chex Mix will also give you that popular and addicting taste in every handful you eat. Plus, Chex mix is the perfect party appetizer, and the more varieties of the popular snack, the better!

Dill Pickle Chex Mix Ingredients

It’s all about the dill in this recipe. I wanted to make sure each bite packed a punch of dill flavor.

Crackers: Garlic is the perfect complement to dill, so I went with garlic parmesan crackers (Good Thins) to add to the mix.

Cereal: I used Rice Chex and Wheat Chex in this recipe. Choose any brand of rice and wheat squares you prefer.

Dill: Both dried dill weed and dill pickle juice are used in this recipe.

Dry Ranch Seasoning Mix: Here is a recipe for homemade ranch seasoning mix if you don’t have a packet on hand. If you make your own, use about 2 tablespoons of the mix (equivalent to a store-bought ranch seasoning mix packet).

How to Make Dill Pickle Chex Mix

To make Chex mix, first, preheat the oven to 250°F and line a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper. Set the baking sheets aside. Next, in a large bowl, combine the broken crackers, both kinds of cereal, the pretzels, and the rye crisps. In a smaller bowl, combine the remaining ingredients.

Then, pour the oil and pickle juice mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients, tossing to coat. Transfer the mix to the lined baking sheets, evenly spreading out the mixture. Bake for 25-30 minutes, stirring halfway through the baking time. When the snack mix is golden brown, remove it from the oven and let it cool completely before serving. Store leftover Chex mix in an airtight container for 3-4 weeks (if it will even last that long)!

    When I first read through the recipe I questioned how much liquid was going on the dry ingredients. I baked them longer so they didn’t end up soggy like they were at 25 minutes. It was as if the liquid washed the taste off the dill crackers I used. They had a lot of dill tasting things on them but didn’t end up tasting very much like dill!
