Dilly Ranch Snack Mix - Made by MiMi

   Be warned!  This stuff is addictive.  It is one of those things where you sit down with a bowl of it so you can write a well informed post, and the next thing you know the bowl is gone.  "This darn bowl must have a hole in it" you say to yourself as you get a little more.  The next thing you know, your fingers and salty and covered in dill and your belly is full.  Not that happened to me.  I only had a few dainty little pieces.  I swear.



   MiMi made this for Easter, so the cheddar bunnies were especially cute!  This mix is a bit brighter than than the original mix that has Worcestershire sauce in it.  It was well received.  She made a huge batch (probably at least double... maybe more) and all I had left was a little half gallon tub.  I bet I wouldn't have had any if I had put a bowl of it outside too!




Dilly Ranch Snack Mix

Ingredients:
3 cups each wheat, rice and corn cereal
2 cups pita chip pieces
1 cup cheddar bunnies (or whatever cheddar crackers you have, but the bunnies are cute!)
1 cup pretzels
1 cup party peanuts
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp dried dill
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1 (0.4 oz) package ranch seasoning

  1. Preheat oven to 250 F
  2. In a large roasting pan, combine cereal, pita chips, crackers, pretzels and peanuts
  3. In a small bowl, mix together oil, dill and garlic
  4. Pour seasoned oil over cereal mix and stir to combine
  5. Bake for 30 minutes, removing to stir after every 10 minutes
  6. Sprinkle ranch seasoning over cereal mix and toss to coat evenly
  7. Spread on paper towels to cool
  8. Store in an airtight container

  1. I love snack mixes. My husband's Grandmother makes a delicious mix I have called "the yummy stuff" (I think it is really called Nuts and Bolts). This reminds of it. Thanks for sharing at Idea Box!

    1. I find most snack mixes really addictive! I like them savory or sweet... I don't really care which way. Just keep the big bowl at a distance if you want any left to share!! I will have to look for a recipe for nuts and bolts, I am intrigued!
