What happens when you coat peanuts, almonds, cashews, rice cereal, and pretzels in sweet-and-spicy butter and bake until they’re crisp and golden? You get an irresistible snack mix that’s perfect for eating by the fistful while watching the big game, hanging around on a lazy Saturday, or welcoming in the new year.

How To:

  1. Preheat oven to 250°F.
  2. Combine the cereal, pretzels, bagel chips, peanuts, almonds and cashews on a large sheet pan.
  3. In a small saucepan set over medium heat, add butter, Worcestershire sauce, honey or maple syrup, hot sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt.
  4. Heat until butter is melted and mixture is smooth.
  5. Pour over the cereal mixture and stir to make sure everything is coated evenly.
  6. Bake in the oven for about an hour and a half until snack mix is golden and crisp, stirring every 20 minutes or so. Let cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to several weeks.
