My mom makes this salty snack every Christmas. We call it Nuts n’ Bolts. It may look like I just threw some cereal, pretzels and peanuts in a bowl and called it good, but there’s a little more to it than that. However, it’s still simple to make and a very tasty treat. Enjoy!
1/2 to 1 box of Crispix cereal (350 grams)
1/2 to 1 box plain Cheerios (400 grams)
1/2 to 1 bag pretzels (400 grams)
1 can peanuts (300 grams)
1/2 cup margarine
2 tbsp. canola oil
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. each onion salt, garlic salt and celery salt
Add as many Crispix, Cheerios and pretzels as you prefer. And if you like less peanuts, then add less. Mix the first four ingredients together and put into a large pan (or two pans). Melt the rest of the ingredients together and pour over the mixture. Mix well and bake for one hour at 250 degrees.
My mom makes a dill version with just a hint of hot spice. They are my favourite! Really I just love anything that has dill in it.
Sounds delish! You’ll have to email me the recipe so I can try it. Merry Christmas!
One of the best Holiday snacks around! My family makes a version of this too, but we just call it Chex mix (boring, I know). I like your name for it better!
I’ve heard it called Chex mix as well. A great holiday snack! Thanks for commenting! Merry Christmas!
My boys helped me make a batch a few weeks ago with ranch seasoning. Believe it or not, the 5 kids ate the whole batch that afternoon. Definitely a Christmas classic.
Absolutely! Ranch seasoning would be great on there. Thanks for commenting! Merry Christmas!
