Buttery Seasoned Snack Mix
Buttery seasoned snack mix combines crunchy toasted pretzels, crackers, cereal and popcorn coated with garlic herb butter and Parmesan cheese. It's the ultimate snacking experience!
- 1 cup (2 sticks) Minerva Dairy garlic herb butter
- 3 cups cheese crackers
- 2 cups mini twist pretzels
- 2 cups puffed cereal
- 4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 3 teaspoons red pepper flakes
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 cup popped popcorn kernels
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
Melt the butter in a large rimmed baking or roasting pan.
While the butter is melting, combine the cheese crackers, pretzels and cereal.
Add the Worchestershire sauce, red pepper flakes and onion powder to the melted butter and stir.
Pour the cracker/cereal mixture over the melted butter and stir until everything is completely coated with the butter mixture.
Return the pan to the oven and roast for 10 minutes.
Add the Parmesan cheese. Stir.
Add the popcorn and stir.
Roast for an additional five minutes.
Allow the snack mix to cook slightly before serving.
Store the cooled snack at room temperature in a large zippered storage bag or a plastic or glass container with an airtight lid. If stored properly, this snack mix can stay fresh for 4-6 weeks (if it even lasts that long).
To freeze, store the snack mix in an airtight plastic container if you’re going to do this. A plastic bag makes the snack mix more susceptible to getting crushed if it gets moved around and glass has the risk of shattering when frozen. I recommend eating the frozen snack mix within one month. Allow the container to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes to one hour to thaw. Then serve as usual.
