No-Bake-Just-Shake Cracker Mix

READY IN: 2hrs
Recipe by carolinajewel

From Southern Lady Magazine Sept/Oct 2005. I edited to change the amount of garlic powder. The original recipe calls for 1 tsp. but my family has found we like it better with just 1/2 tsp. Just a matter of taste!

This was good and easy to make. I made this and took it to work and it was gone in three days. I followed the recipe exactly as written other then I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil as that is all I had. Yummy snack.
