By the time you read this Christmas will be over and New Years just around the corner! We also have some long winter days and nights ahead, which means some cozy snacks to share by the fire! Today’s snack is one of my favorites. By now we should have our fill of sweets, so let’s have a change of pace. I do like the customary recipe for chex party mix but I like this cracker snack even more. It makes lots, so should last for awhile. It has those darn carbs though, so pace yourselves!
Cracker Snack Mix
1 pkg. original flavor Bugles
1 pkg. nacho flavor Bugles
6 cups miniature pretzels
1 pkg. butter flavor crackers
1 box wheat thins
1 box cheese nips
1 pkg. miniature parmesan fish crackers
1 can mixed nuts
1 bottle ( 10-12 oz.) butter flavored pop corn oil
2 envelopes dry Ranch dressing
Mix all crackers, bugles and nuts together in a large bowl. Whisk together the butter flavor oil and dry dressing and drizzle over cracker mixture, stirring carefully. Transfer to four 10x15 inch baking pans, bake at 250 degrees for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool and store in an air-tight container. Happy New Year!!
