My Party Mix
1 box Crispix cereal (I think it has about 6 cups)
1 can nuts of choice (I prefer cashews)
10 oz. salted pretzel sticks
1 teaspoon celery salt
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon Seasoned salt (I use mcCormicks)
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1 Tbl. Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 cup vegetable oil (I use canola)
Pre-heat oven to 250F.
In a large roasting pan combine, Crispix cereal, nuts, and salted pretzel sticks
In a bowl combine Celery salt, Garlic Salt, Seasoned salt (I use mcCormicks)
Add Tabasco sauce and Worcestershire Sauce.
Stir together and whisk in 1/2 cup vegetable oil.
While whisking to keep it emulsified, drizzle the oil/spice mixture over the cereal/pretzel/nuts in the roaster.
Toss to ensure the mixture is coated evenly, and bake for 2 hours, tossing and turning the mix every 15 minutes or so.
Remove and allow to fully cool at room temperature before packaging in airtight containers.
Keeps indefinitely, and makes a wonderful hostess gift.
