day 312: holiday snack mix—reindeer spicy snack mix

A couple of entries ago, I introduced goody gifts that families can make (or at least assemble) together (  ). Then yesterday I started out with our first “sweet” snack mix (   )--which was a sweet, simple one.

Today I would like to introduce a spicy one that takes a little more work (stove top sauce and then baking mix)—but is still not too difficult. It is different (and a little spicier) than your typical Chex mix. Give it a try!

(Again, I based the servings on 2 cup servings, the amount we put in individual bags for gifts.)

Reindeer Spicy Snack Mix serv=2 cups/b serves 24


8 Cup Bugles If unavail, may use


8 Cup Cheez it

8 Cup Pretzel Twists

4 Cup Corn Chex Cereal

4 Cup Bite Sized Shredded Wheat

8 Tablespoon Maple Syrup

10 Teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce

5 Teaspoon Cajun seasoning

 2-4 Tablespoons Cayenne Pepper

2. In another bowl, combine remaining ingredients.

3. Pour wet ingredients over dry mixture and toss to coat.

4. Transfer to an ungreased 15 x 10 x 1 inch baking pan (more than one for

multiple batches).

5. Bake, uncovered, at 250' regular for 1 hr, stirring evry 15 mins (45-50

mins convection; stirring every ten; adjust for multiple batches and stir

more frequently).
