Ingredients

  • 1 box
    corn chex (12 oz.)
  • 1 box
    cheerios (10 oz.)
  • 1 box
    honey comb (10 oz.)
  • 1 pkg
    pretzels, broken (10 oz.)
  • THE CEREAL BOXES SEEM TO BE LITTLE DIFFERENT SIZE THAN THEY USED TO BE. IF THERE IS A LITTLE EXTRA CEREAL I WILL USE IT AND IT DOES NOT SEEM TO MATTER.

  • 1 3/4 c
    white sugar
  • 1 c
    canola oil
  • 1 c
    melted butter
  • 1/4 c
    honey (melt with butter)

    soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp
    garlic salt
  • 1 Tbsp
    seasoning salt
  • YES. ALL THE SEASONINGS ARE TABLESPOONS.

How to Make Sweet and Salty Snack Mix

Step-by-Step

  1. Empty all cereal and pretzels into a large container. I actually use a plastic storage container for this.
  2. Mix together oil, sugar, butter, honey, and seasonings and stir until sugar is incorporated. It will not dissolve. You do not need to heat this. The baking will do this.
  3. Pour the oil and sugar mixture over cereal and pretzels. Stir to mix thoroughly.
  4. Pour cereal mixture into two large roasting pans and spread out.
  5. Bake at 275 degrees for about an hour stirring every 15 minutes until crispy and glazed.
  6. Cool and stir to break apart. Store in an airtight container. This freezes well too.
