Woohoo! Party Mix. This one is for me. I love this stuff. I can't stop eating it once I get started. I could easily eat it for three meals a day. All the cookies and sweets I'm making? I don't eat them. I am making them as gifts for the sweet-toothed people I love. I taste everything, but I am not tempted, at all, to indulge. Bring out the savories and I'm in trouble.
I remember my Mother making this when I was girl. The aroma was dizzyingly delicious. She was actually making it for the "grown-ups", but I did get to sample some. Mama baked the mix, stirring every few minutes, which is what smelled so divine, wafting through the kitchen.
A super easy version of the snack mix can be made in the microwave.
3 cups corn chex
3 cups rice chex
3 cups wheat chex
1 cup mixed nuts
2 cups cheese crackers
1 stick butter
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. each: sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder
Mix cereals, nuts, and crackers in a large microwave safe bowl.
In a small bowl, melt butter in microwave, uncovered for 30 seconds or until melted. Stir in seasonings, then pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated.
Microwave, uncovered for 6 minutes, thoroughly stirring every 2 minutes. Spread on paper towels to cool.
