  • 1/2 c butter
  • 12 Tbsp olive oil
  • 14 tsp seasoned salt
  • 15 Tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 18 c rice chex cereal
  • 18 c corn chex cereal
  • 13 c thin pretzel sticks or small twists*
  • 12 c smokehouse flavor almonds
  • 11 c shelled pistachios (optional)**
  • 1 Rice/GrainsSpray large turkey roaster with food release. Put butter and olive oil in the bottom of the roaster, and put it in the oven while it's preheating to 250*. While butter is melting, measure out your cereal, pretzels, and almonds. Set aside. When butter is melted add the Worcestershire Sauce and seasoned salt. Stir a bit to combine. All at once add cereal and pretzels. Stir gently and thoroughly, until well-coated. This will take a few minutes, and it's important for best distribution of flavor. Bake 1 hour, stirring gently and thoroughly every 15 minutes.
  • After 45 min, stir in smokehouse almonds. Return roaster to the oven, turn the oven off, and allow the mix to finish, then cool, in the oven.
  • Add pistachios, if desired and/or other add-ins.
  • Store airtight. * I use VitaSpelt Original Pretzels, since we're gluten sensitive. **Other optional add-ins include: sesame sticks, Glutino GF Bagel Chips, rice crackers (especially good with tamari almonds), and for those not GF, crunchy Cheetos, cheese nips, or fish crackers.
  • Besides being tasty and fun, this is a good way to stretch the mix if you need to. NOTES: If you prefer, you can use plain whole almonds -- I put them in the oven with the melting butter, to toast them a bit. You could also use tamari almonds instead of the smokehouse flavor, if you like.
  • If you're not gluten sensitive or allergic to peanuts, this recipe works just as well with the classic ingredients: 6c.rice, 6c. corn, 4c. wheat chex, 2c. peanuts, 3c. pretzels -- it's the ingredient amounts and combinations that make it better (we think!) than the original recipe :)
