'Can't Keep Your Hands Out of It' Snack Mix

Okay, let me be honest.  I'm not going to claim that this snack mix is going to win any awards.  It's about as simple as simple can get.  It's not fancy.  I'm pretty sure most food snobs would turn up their nose and walk away.

But you know what?  Sometimes you just need to reach your hand into a bowl and come back with a salty snack.

There is nothing complicated about this mix.  In fact, I bet you all have a similar recipe.  But....I do think the combo of these four snacky items really make a good combo.  There I said it.  You have to use these four items, or it just won't work!

Really, I will KNOW if you don't use these four items.

The husband loved picking out the spicy Bugles and my little guy was drawn to the pretzels.  We all had our favorites.  I personally liked a mouthful of the pretzel, Bugle and white cheddar Cheez-It.

So classy, I know.

'Can't Keep Your Hands Out of It' Snack Mix

1 large bag Spicy Buffalo Bugles
1 bag oyster crackers
1/2 large bag pretzels
1 box White Cheddar Cheez-Its
1 pkt. Ranch dressing seasoning mix
olive oil

1.  Empty all contents into a large roasting pan.
2.  Drizzle generously with olive oil, ranch packet and toss to coat.
3.  Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 25 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes.
4.  Store in an airtight container or large plastic bag.
5.  It makes a lot!

Now for a question for my readers...

What do you want to see next?  Thanksgiving sides?  Holiday cookies?  Healthier alternatives to all the crap we'll be eating during the upcoming holiday season?  Desserts? Slow Cooker Meals?

You tell me!

Leave me a comment saying what you want to see next.  I'm all ears.  If you don't comment I'll never know!

Would you like to comment?

  1. Snack mix is such a nostalgic food, don't you think? What kid doesn't love it?!

    And I'd LOVE to see some slow cooker meals. I have two crock pots that are in constant rotation at our house :)

  2. Um, pretty sure the bugles made that snack mix! I am always on the look out for side dishes. :D
