This Savory snack mix is a big hit. This is a recipe for a large batch. At my house it still doesn’t last too long. I use it for hostess gifts in fancy jars too. I use whole boxes or bags of ingredients so I don’t have partial packages left over. The yield may differ from what I put in the recipe. It does cook for a long while, but the result is worth it. Baking the mixture helps to evenly distribute the butter and seasonings, and really get the flavours into each tasty morsel. Note: I prefer to use corn Chex in this mixture so I will pick them up In the USA if I am there. Usually I use Aldi or other store brand as it is more cost effective.. I also use store brand ‘Oat Os’ instead of Cheerios for the same reason. Where I have used the plain penguin snack crackers you can substitute cheese batons, gold fish, oyster crackers or any other type of tiny crackers. Alphabet pretzels are good as well, because the size is then consistent through the whole mixture. I buy these in the USA as well because they are not sold in Loblaw’s grocery stores any longer and I have not been able to locate them anywhere else in the GTA.
