Great stuff - it just won't last long - I recommend making two batches. One for your guests and one for yourself :-) I added goldfish crackers like you suggested and the cereal, pretzels and peanuts. Delicious!

This party mix was some mighty spicy stuff. I made it for New Year's and my family went through it like nobody's business. I did get a bowl full to taste. Very salty and zesty. We had lots of cold beer and iced tea to cool us off. Thanks Junebug. This is something I would definitely make again.

Great snack mix. I served it at Christmas and my family killed it. Perfectly seasoned. The burn comes on slowly and after a few bites, you are looking for something to drink. Loved it, Junebug. Thanks.

I've been making this every Christmas for the past 25 years and sending some out with my Christmas packages. It is always a BIG HIT. However, the recipe I have calls uses 1/4 butter and a 1/4 cup of bacon grease/fat, and no celery salt. It is awesome, and I would recommend that you bacon lovers replace half the butter with bacon fat - YUMMMMMY! I also use 1 lb of assorted nuts.

This was my first time making an sort of Chex Mix-like thing, and I enjoyed the process. And WOW, the flavor really puts the bagged stuff to shame! I wasn't expecting these to be as spicy as they were, but that's a good thing as I like things very spicy. This mix is definitely not for everyone for that reason though. For some reason, the wheat Chex I used burned, but the other pieces were fine. Next time I might just replace the wheat Chex with something else to avoid that.

I added a tablespoon of sugar to the mix to make it sweet as well as salty/spicy. Very good!

This was great! I made it for my brother who is absolutely obsessed with spicy and crunchy foods. The only differences I had was less chex mix, more nuts, no pretzels, and I added air popped popcorn (taste preferences). I used pecans and coconut to offset the spiciness a bit and added extra tabasco sauce. My eyes literally watered a bit every time I opened the oven but it was JUST the way he likes it. Great for guys!
