Out Of This World Party Mix

I found this recipe on the taste of home bulletin board. I used my 18 qt Nesco roaster to cook this in. As you can see, it filled it all the way up! This makes a whole lot of mix, so I froze a ziploc bag full--I read somewhere that it stays fresh in the freezer which makes sense since I put bags of potato chips in there, too. This is a tasty snack!
Out Of This World Party Mix
taste of home bb

(1) 12 Ounce Box Crispix Cereal (10 Cups)
(1) 13-15 Ounce Box Honey Graham Or Golden Graham Cereal (8-9 Cups)
(2) 12.25 Ounce Bags Bugles (7-8 Cups)
(1) 12.5 Ounce Bag Pepperidge Farm Goldfish (4-5 Cups)
(1) 14-15 ounce Bag Pretzels (9-10 Cups)
(2) 15-17 Ounce Cans Mixed Nuts (5-6 Cups)
(2) 1 Ounce Packages Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix
(2) Bottles Orville Redenbacher Popcorn Oil (12 Oz ea)

Dump the first six ingredients into a VERY LARGE roaster. Mix the dressing mixes and popping oil in a small bowl. Pour over ingredients. Bake uncovered at 250 degrees for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. This makes a huge amount, so you have to have a large roaster to make it in the first place.....or find something large to mix in and use two pans to bake in!


  1. Momma, you are making me very hungry.

  2. Yummy! Snack mix is a must-have in our house. Very interesting idea to use popcorn butter oil instead of a flavorless canola/vege oil. I like that idea! I'd love for you to add this to the Hump Day Hoorah link party. I hope to see you there! :)

  3. The fact that this has Bugles in it makes it an automatic winner!
