    Party Mix Recipe

    Party mix is one of my favorite snacks during the holiday season. Although I could make the treat any time of the year, I have fond memories of eating the seasoned cereal mix during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s. I have thus continued the tradition in my own home by making heaping bowls of party mix for the holidays.


    • Party Mix3/4 cup of butter
    • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons of seasoned salt
    • 1 teaspoon of garlic salt
    • 1 teaspoon of onion salt
    • 18 cups of Chex, Cheerios, peanuts, and pretzels

    6. Pour the butter mixture over the cereal until evenly coated.
    7. Pour the coated cereal onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
