Nuts and Bolts

Post by bjbear » May 3rd, 2013, 7:32 am

This is a great snack recipe. It makes a lot so you will need a good sized mixing bowl that will go in the oven.

1 lb. Margarine
1/2 Tsp. Curry Powder
3 Tsp. Chilli Powder
3 Tsp. Garlic Powder (Alt: Garlic Salt)
3 Tsp. Accent (Optional)
1 Tsp. Salt (Do not add if using Garlic Salt)
5 Tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
  • o Preheat oven to 250 F (120 C)
    o Melt margarine in sauce pan.
    o Add all spices, salt, accent and Worcestershire sauce. Mix well.
    o Cook on low heat for several minutes to dissolve as much spice as possible.

1 box Crispex Cereal (alternate: Shreddies or other Rice/Corn Cereal)
1/2 box Cherrios
1 box Cheese Nibs (Alt: Gold Fish Crackers)
2 pkg Pretzels - use lots. Straight sticks or small regular pretzels work best.
500 gram Peanuts
1 pkg Bugles (Alt: Corn Chips)
  • o Add all dry ingredients to a very large mixing bowl.
    o Slowly add margarine and spice mixture a little at a time while tossing dry ingredients to coat evenly. Continue to stir liquid to keep spices mixed uniformly.
    o Toss well to evenly coat dry ingredients with margarine/spice mixture.
    o Place mixing bowl in oven and bake at 250 F (120 C) for 90 minutes. Stir every 15 - 20 minutes.
    o Allow to cool. Store in tightly sealed container in cool location.
