How To Make sweet and salty snack mix

  • 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.
