Christmas Snacks: Nuts n’ Bolts

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!
Ingredients
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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
