Snack Mix

Makes about 20 servings ~ Perfect for parties, football games or even package this up and give as small gifts for the holidays! Mix this up to suit YOUR taste---cheerios or Life cereal instead of the corn & rice cereal....substitute cheese flavored popcorn for the cheese balls, etc.  Make it your own!

Snack Mix

8 Tbsp. butter
4 C crispy corn-and-rice cereal
4 C crispy wheat cereal squares
4 C pretzel sticks
4 C cheese crackers
4 C smoked almonds (my fav)
2 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
3/4 tsp. ground Chipotle chile pepper
6 C cheese puff balls

Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
In the bottom of a large roasting pan, melt butter.
Add corn-and-rice cereal, wheat cereal, pretzels, crackers and almonds to roasting pans.  Stir gently to coat with butter.
In a small bowll, combine garlic salt, cumin, paprika and chipotle chile pepper.  Sprinkle cereal mixture with garlic-salt mixture, stirring until cereal mixture is evenly coated.
Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.  Immediately spread cereal mixture onto parchment paper to cool.  Add cheese puff balls to ceral mixture, tossing gently to combine.  Store in an airtight container.
