This is our families favourite savoury Christmas treat … we only make it at this time of year for some reason, and we all love it. The butter makes it a treat you shouldn’t have often, but enjoy when you do!
Remember – use your own families favourite ingredients, whether it is the cereal aspect or the nuts – make it your own to enjoy.
1 pound butter
2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp onion salt
1 tbsp celery salt
Melt and stir until seasoning is well mixed. Dip a Bugle, or or shreddie or something in it at this point and make sure you can taste the seasoning – if it needs more flavour, add a bit of each. Remember – critical – taste!! Everybody has different seasoning, and each brand is different in it’s level of flavour. (and freshness)
4 cups Cheerios
4 cups Life cereal (or Shreddies)
1 package pretzels
1 package Bugles (4-6 cups depending on your preference)
1 bag cheese crackers (goldfish) (3 cups)
2 cups peanuts
1 cup pecans
1 cup walnuts
Stir the melted butter/spice mix over the dry ingredients – mix well and bake in the largest roaster you have – it makes a lot.
Bake at 250 for 1 & 1/2 hours, stirring frequently.
Cool completely and store in an airtight container. (at least, try to store it – doesn’t last long….)
