    Ranch Snack Mix

    I usually make this all through the winter, but seem to go through it like mad this time of year especially. This recipe is adapted from my mom's recipe for Chex Mix, or "Nuts and Bolts, as she has always called it. You can use whatever combination of cereals or pretzels, nuts, etc., but I listed what I use so you can have an idea of the quantity for the recipe.

    1/2 box wheat chex
    1/2 box corn chex
    1/2 box plain mini shredded wheat
    2 reg. size bags or 1 family size bag of pretzels (I use Snyder's Snaps)


    1/2 stick of butter
    1/4 cup of worcestershire sauce
    2 tsp. garlic salt
    2 tsp. onion salt


    5 tbsp. of dry ranch dressing/seasoning


    Preheat oven to 225deg. Mix cereal and pretzels in a large roasting pan. In a small saucepan combine butter and worcestershire sauce and heat until butter is melted. Whisk in garlic and onion salt, stirring until salt is dissolved. Pour this mixture over cereal and pretzels and stir well. Then add 3 tbsp. of the ranch seasoning and stir well again. Then add the rest of the ranch seasoning and stir well. Cover and bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. After 45 minutes, bake uncovered.

    Right on my friend, and it gets too hard to stir it and get the seasonings spread evenly.

    My own personal thoughts, vegetable oil, or margarine is not healthier than butter. And calories will be the same as the butter.
    If man had enough horse sense to treat his wife like a Thoroughbred, she'd never grow into an old nag.

    I too keep a bag of marshmallows in the house. While they are not truly marshmallow, (if you look at the ingredients), they are better than a throat lozenge to hold in your mouth, for sore or scratchy throats. Hardest thing is not eating them, instead of letting them dissolve. But I have that problem with lozenges too!

    It's in my DNA. If it's brittle I have no control...it is automatically bitten down on; if it makes a crunch, the process is repeated until the offending object is gone.
