Salty and Smokey

Home Run Snack Party Mix has a salty and smokey flavor verses a sweet/salty taste. This recipe is a real fan favorite among the males in my family, probably due to the smokiness from the liquid smoke and steak sauce. Like all Chex Party Mixes, this one is also highly potent and addictive. It seems everyone has their favorite Chex party mix. There are so many pre-packaged party mixes on the market, its hard to choose just one.

Homemade vs Packaged

I don’t think you can really fairly compared the two. Homemade Chex party mix is made with fresh, creamy butter, soy sauce, and any other ingredients you’d like to add. And packaged Chex party mix, is a little saltier than homemade but just think of all of the flavors you can choose from!! Now they even have low-salt versions also. It’s like comparing homemade caramel corn with store bought, they’re both delicious. but sometimes you want homemade and sometimes you don’t.

Kitchen Tip: Grease only the bottoms of loaf pans for quick breads. Un-greased sides allow the batter to cling while rising during baking, which helps form a gently rounded top. If sides are greased, the edges of the loaf may have ridges.
