Fall Snack Mix

Standard

I made a couple batches of this for our school bake sale. It’s super easy, makes a ton and is addictive! I am including both sweet and a savory versions.
Savory Snack Mix: (Straight from Chex box)

3 Cups Corn Chex cereal 

3 Cups Rice Chex cereal

3 Cups Wheat Chex cereal

OR any combination you prefer. I used 4 Cups of Corn and 4 Cups of Rice Chex and added a Cup of Goldfish

Here’s where it gets fun – You can do any addition you like, it’s up to you!

1 Cup mixed nuts. (I used almonds in the savory and pecans in the sweet)

1 Cup bite sized pretzels 

1 Cup garlic bagel chips or Melba toasts

I mentioned above that I used one less cup of cereal and added 1 cup of goldfish crackers. The possibilities are endless.

1-2 Cups candy corn to the savory/1-2 Cups m&ms to the sweet mix (add to mix after it bakes and cools)

Combine dry ingredients (except candy) in a large bowl and add the savory or sweet coating below:

SAVORY: Use this coating if you are doing the savory mix

1-1.5 sticks butter, melted 

2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

1.5 teaspoons seasoned salt

3/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

Whisk until combined



SWEET: use this coating if you are doing the sweet mix

1-1.5 sticks butter, melted

3/4 packed brown sugar

2 Tablespoons vanilla extract 

Whisk until combined 


Baking Instructions:

Preheat oven 250 degrees

Pour over the snack mix in a large bowl and mix together until evenly coating all the snack pieces.

Spread out on several cookie sheets. Bake for one hour. Take the treys out of the oven and mix with a spatula every 15 minutes while baking. Let cool, add candy and enjoy!
