This might be your new favorite snack!

With one of America’s biggest snacking days around the corner—I am, of course, talking about the Super Bowl—there’s no better time than now to up your party snack game! If you’re a lover of crunch, salt, and the delicious taste of dill pickles, than we have the perfect recipe for you. Dill pickle ranch Chex mix is a fun snack that combines a touch of ranch with the classic taste of Chex for an addictive, easy-to-make snack in just 15 minutes.

A recipe on Betty Crocker’s site shows how easy it is. First, gather a base mix of Chex cereals, garlic bagel chips, and pretzel pieces together. Then coat the mix with your dill weed and pickle juice oil combination, incorporate the dry ranch dressing mix, microwave, and allow to cool. It’s a quick recipe that packs a ton of flavor and it’s ideal for sharing come game day.

Blogger Kelsey at Nosh City offers a slightly different recipe and it looks equally tasty. In addition to Crispix cereal (similar to Chex) and pretzels, she includes cheese Ritz Bitz which creates an extra layer of cheesy goodness to the already addictive recipe. While the recipe contains peanuts, they can easily be removed for guests who may have food allergies.

For those of us who prefer a more sweet and salty combination, the blog Sally’s Baking Addiction offers a homemade Chex mix recipe that’s basically a flavor explosion. It’s coated in a combination of butter Worcestershire sauce, honey, and hot sauce and not surprisingly, it tastes incredible. For even more kick, spices including chili powder and garlic powder are sprinkled on to everything before the mix is baked for an hour.

It’s going to be so hard to choose which of these Chex mixes to make for the Super Bowl, that’s for sure! What are some of your go-to party snacks?
