My wonderful aunt[she passed last year at 93 years of age; sharp as a tack right up to the end.] introduced me to these in the mid '80s or 90s. She gratiously gave me the recipe and I have made them often since esp. for CHRISTMAS TIME along with CHEX Mix. Be forewarned. they are addictive and you won't be able to stop munching on them once you start. Thankfully they are easy to make and store well. ENJOY!!!
Place first 4 ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Stir and thoroughly combine with a wire whisk. Dump crackers into seasoning mixture. Stir until all crackers are coated.
Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. While oven is heating, spoon coated crackers into an even layer onto a large baking sheet that has raised sides all around.
Place the baking sheet and crackers into preheated oven and bake for 1 hr. remove crackers from oven and cool. Store cooled crackers in airtight containers. I find that the large containers flavored popcorn comes in or the ones that butter cookies come in work great.
