Vanessa's Famous Snack Mix

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by Chef_Vanessa

This is so good--well at least my family and i think it does. Try it- great combination of salty and sweet; great for a large party--or like my sister and I do, eat it all! Great for clearing out the last bits of crackers and such in your cupboard too! :) Enjoy!

I struggled with getting all of the cereals & crackers coated. Is three teaspoons of liquids correct for 8 cups of crackers? I ended up using 1/2 cup oil, 1/4 cup soy sauce, and 1 teaspoon of sesame oil. I upped the dry spices as well. The mixture did bake off nicely and I have it stored in bags for snacking. Thank your for sharing your recipe! Reviewed for PAC Fall'07.
