Fall has officially arrived here in our neck of the woods
and it has been getting rather chilly here in the evenings!
We got our first frost the other morning and it was rather cold outside!
I love it when I can get a fire going in the ol' wood stove
and get in my kitchen and make up a yummy snack for the family.
I have been busy for well over a week, getting the guys ready to go hunting.
And this is one of the snacks I made for them to take.
Here's what you'll need to make spicy mix:
1 box rice or corn chex cereal
1 bag bugles
1/2 box Cheerios cereal
1 bag goldfish pretzels or pretzels of your choice
1 bag goldfish cheese crackers
1 box cheese crackers, (Cheese-Its)
1/2 cup veg. oil
1 package ranch mix
2 Tbsp. steak or southwest seasoning
1 Tbsp. Cayenne Powder
2 tsp. garlic salt
Preheat your oven to 250 degrees.
Pour the cereals, pretzels, bugles and
cheese crackers into a large roasting pan.
In a small bowl, combine the oil, ranch mix,
steak seasoning, cayenne powder and garlic salt.
Mix really well.
Pour over your dry mix and stir really good.
Bake for 1 hour, stirring about every 20 minutes
to evenly mix the seasoned oil throughout your cereal mixture.
Pull out of the oven and let your mix cool completely
before placing in your container or bags.
If you have a larger family or just want to make a lot
you can double your recipe.
And really you can add just about anything
you want to make your own creation of flavors!
I also make a sweet mix.
Because who doesn't like sweet and salty.

I hope you all have a delightfully spicy or sweet kind of a day!
