Snack Mix

As promised here is the recipe for the snack mix our friend brought to the Super Bowl party (picture here). The recipe is from our friends as I received it yesterday. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. It was a huge hit with the guys.

My Notes: Dill weed and dill leaf are the same to distinguish the foliage from the seeds for culinary use. What I like about this version is there is no baking involved so it can quickly be mixed and set aside while you other dishes prepared for entertaining. It is a perfect snack for events like Super Bowl parties. Store in an air tight container.

Snack Mix
recipe by a friend

1/2 cup oil
2 teaspoons dill leaf
1 dry package ranch dressing

Mix these 3 ingredients together and pour over 8 cups mix

Goldfish crackers
Cheese nips
Broken pretzels
Crispex cereal
Mini Breton Crackers
Corn Bran cereal
1/2 mixed nuts

This is the recipe [edited] as we received it. Put whatever you want in it, but just 8
cups. We put 2 kinds of pretzels in it. I bought Presidents Choice mini
crackers for it, they look like Mini Breton crackers but are $1.00 cheaper.
Also we used just peanuts not mixed nuts. It looks really greasy when you
first make it, but after a few hours it all soaks in. Also I used dillweed,
I don't know if there's are difference between the two or not.

I make a snack mix that I use for snacking at work. I buy 1 pkg of Chex mix, which to me has a little too much garlic for the work place. I pour it into a large container, add cherrios, almonds, cheeze-its and rice chex. This tones down the garlic, still had flavor and is really good for the digestive system.

I make a snack only with oyster crackers along with the seasoning you did on these. The oyster crackers absorb all of the seasoning.

I left an award for you on my blog.
Have a great evening!
