    I looked & couldn't find a recipe that refers to Gardetto's. icon_sad.gif I love their snack mix!! Especially the bagel chips. Maybe one of these might fit the bill though. You might try reducing the recipe to make a smaller amount until you find the one closest to what you are looking for. HTH

    This isn't a snack mix recipe... but the spice mix for this chicken smells a lot like original Gardetto's... maybe with some modification it would work? recipe #98695

    I found a recipe on KopyCatChat dot com. I completed it today, and it's close-ish using the Tabasco hot sauce and sugar. Going to keep trying till I get it where I want it.

    I say "completed," because the first thing I did was make a recipe of wheat bread dough in the breadmaker (you could also use your Kitten-Aide or food processor, or knead by hand--whatever you usually do when making bread), then instead of baking it as a loaf, I rolled pieces into pencil widths and baked, creating homemade bread sticks, which I cut to 1" lengths and baked on low heat (225 F.) until completely dried out. Then, I made a loaf of rye bread dough and repeated the process, but making sort of small-baguette loaves (about 1 1/2" across) that I baked like bread until done. When cooled, I cut these into 3/16" thick "chips" and baked these on low heat until crisped completely dry. I'd already bought a box each of store-brand "Chex"-type cereals (rice and corn), and a bag each of store-brand small pretzels and tiny stick pretzels. I used 2 Cups of each (rye chips, bread sticks, rice cereal, corn cereal, pretzels, pretzel sticks) for a total of 12 cups. I increased the butter to 10 T. instead of 9, but kept everything else the same. Combined them, and dried again for 2 hours on 250 F., stirring occasionally. Air-cooled, also stirring to release as much moisture as possible.

    Since I didn't use the peanuts they call for, you could likely use this recipe to better effect using the prescribed 9 T. butter and just cut back your crunchies to 10 C. total. There is a slight lack of uniformity to the flavoring that this might solve. I used a Rival electric slicer (cheap model) with serrated stainless blade that worked perfectly for the rye bread chips, so it didn't really take as long as you might think, particularly given that I've still got enough chips for about four more batches, and enough bread sticks for about three more batches.

    Hope that helps.
