From the Pillsbury Best Holiday Recipes 2009 magazine, I saw this great chex mix recipe — you may remember that back in December, I was on a bit of a kick with party mixes, including an original flavored mix, and a curried cran-orange mix. Well, I had another gathering that called for some treats, and I thought this might be a nice recipe to try. I brought the leftovers in for a marathon meeting at work, and it couldn’t have gone over any better! And, for a snack mix that doesn’t require baking and can be ready pretty quickly, this recipe is a keeper!
Cheesy Ranch Chex Mix
9 c Corn, Rice, or Wheat Chex cereal (or a combination)
2 c pretzel twists
2 c Cheez-Its
1 Tsp butter or margarine, melted
1 pkg ranch dressing mix
1/2 c grated Parmesan cheese
In a large microwavable bowl, mix cereal, pretzels, and crackers; set aside. In small microwaveable bowl, microwave butter until melted (about 30 seconds). Pour over cereal mixture; stir until evenly coated. Stir in dressing mix and cheese until evenly coated.
Microwave uncovered on high for 3 minutes, stirring each minute. Spread on waxed paper or foil to cool. Store in airtight container.
