Savoring Summertime: Reindeer Snack Mix

6:58 AM

Well, I thought I would try something different today. How about a great summer recipe? I am going to try and post a summertime recipe every Saturday so be sure to stop by and see what goodies are coming out of my kitchen on the weekend!


I discovered this recipe several years ago and it has become a favorite...especially around the holidays. However, it is a perfect treat for just about any time. My hubby and I take it to parties, eat it on game night and we always get sooo many great compliments on it! There is a little "zing" to it, so be prepared to give your tastebuds a real treat!
Reindeer Snack Mix
2 c. Bugles
2 c. cheese-flavored snack crackers (like Cheez-its)
2 c. pretzel sticks
1 c. Corn Chex
1 c. bite-sized unsweetened Shredded Wheat
1 c. pecan halves (optional...they are VERY expensive)
1/2 c. butter
1 Tbsp. maple syrup
1-1/2 tsp. Worchestershire sauce
3/4 tsp. Cajun seasoning
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. In another bowl, combine the butter, syrup, Worchestershire sauce, Cajun seasoning and cayenne pepper; pour over cereal mixture and toss to coat.

Transfer to an ungreased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. ungreased baking pan (I use a cookie sheet). Bake, uncovered, at 250 degrees for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Yield: about 9 cups.
If you are taking to a party, I recommend doubling the will be glad that you did! :) Enjoy! ::

  6. This looks like such a great alternative to chex mix.. Thanks for sharing the recipe :)

  7. By far the best snack mix I have ever made!! Don't think I will ever make any other kind. Something about the salty, slightly sweet and a little heat that temp your taste buds! DO NOT start eating this on an empty stomach, or you will eat the entire bowl!!
