Moe "trash", ready for snacking and partying!

Top Review by evewitch

The combination of ingredients really intrigued me, so I made them for my Christmas eve snack "meal." I accidently "burned" them a bit (the sauce began to char), because they still seemed quite wet after 50 min., but they began to burn in that last 10. Even without that "smoky" taste, I think the flavor would have overwhelmed the ingredients, and made the interesting combination a bit pointless (if it tastes like Chex mix, why not use Chex?). Maybe this would just be a really neat combination of flavors as a trail mix-type snack, without the sauce and baking step.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
  2. Combine Fritos, Chee-tos, Cheez-Its, corn nuts, sesame sticks, potato sticks, and soy nuts in a large bowl, mixing well.
  3. In a saucepan, melt the butter or margarine; add the Worcestershire, paprika, garlic and onion powders, chili powder, liquid smoke, bbq sauce and Tabasco.
  4. Combine with a whisk until smooth.
  5. Pour mixture over snack mix and stir well until all of the snacks seem equally coated.
  6. Spread the snack mix on a large flat baking sheet that has a lipped edge and bake for 1 hour, stirring every 10 minutes (this promotes even drying).
  7. Mixture is done when it is dry and crisp; the sesame sticks get crispest as they cool.
  8. Cool snack mix and store in an airtight container until ready for use.
