Spicy Cereal Mix...

God's Grace Overflows Blog

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.

See... the possibilities are endless!!

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

Hugs & Blessings,

Mmmm...these snacks look really good and perfect for hunters! We will be heading to the Nashville area in a couple weeks for the family's annual Father/Son hunt! Looking forward to having some yummy venison...real soon! :)

Amy- That is a bit different than my recipe. I am copying it to my files. My family loves this and it just screams FALL!
I copied Roxy's recipe, too. I did not know there was maple flavored cereal until I saw it there. xo Diana

This sounds very delicious. I made a pin for it so I don't forget where I saw it!

This looks like a great snack! I've never made my own before so I think I'll have to give it try! Thanks so much Amy! You are a blessing!! Diane

Hello Amy, this is such a great original fall mix... It is a keeper!
I like to keep a bag of a mix in my car for a quick snack. Thanks for adding my version and your SIL also. I think you're the best baker and homemaker around. Have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs, Roxy

I can see this becoming very addicting! I would do the sweet and salty version! Thank you for sharing this on the Art of Home-Making Mondays :)

OOH yummy Amy! I always try to make things like this for large crowds so I won't have so much to discipline myself from eating, lol! What a great idea to make to send with your guys for a hunting trip! I have used the ranch seasoning, oil and cayenne pepper with just pretzels for a great snack too, but I want to try your recipe with the other yummy munchies! Hope the house isn't too quiet for you with all the guys gone! :)

Amy, that looks super yummy! I love how you made is spicy because you know everything taste better spicy... Miss you! Wish we could do something fun while the guys are hunting.
Love Ash

Hi Amy! I'm not one for a lot of spices, so maybe I'd make this minus the cayenne pepper? I love Chex mix though. I could munch my way into a lot of trouble with this recipe :)

I did pop over to visit your SIL. How fun to have a family of bloggers! I'm sure you encourage each other, and learn so much too.
Just got back from my daughter's this weekend. Her little Charlie was baptized, and it was such a beautiful time with family and her friends. My niece even came, she borrowed a car from a roommate (she's in college) and was able to come. God is good!
Hope you had a good weekend too :)
