Crock Pot Parmesan Ranch Chex Mix

I made this and it was a big hit.  Everyone thought it tasted like Gardettos snack mix.
Crock Pot Parmesan Ranch Chex Mix

3 cups Rice Chex
2 cups Melba Roasted Garlic Snacks {or Bagel Chips}, broken into pieces Beth used Rye Chips
2 cups Mini Pretzel Twists
2 cups Italian Four Cheese Cheez-Its Beth used white cheddar
1.5 cups Lightly Salted Whole Cashews
1 stick Butter, melted
1 Hidden Valley Ranch Mix packet
¼ cup grated Parmesan Cheese
1 tsp. Salt
½ tsp. Onion Powder
½ tsp. Garlic Salt

1. Add Chex, Melba Snacks, Pretzels, Cheez-Its, and Cashews to Crock Pot, and stir well to combine.

2. In small bowl, combine Ranch Mix packet, Parmesan Cheese, Salt, Onion Powder, and Garlic Salt. Stir well to combine.

3. Pour seasoning mixture over snacks in Crock Pot, and stir well.

4. Then pour melted butter over snack mixture in Crock Pot, and stir well.

5. Cover Crock Pot with lid, and place a paper towel just under the lid to collect the condensation when cooking. {this will keep your Chex Mix nice and crispy.

6. Cook on LOW for 1.5 - 2 hours, or until done. Make sure to stir well at least every 30 minutes to avoid burning.

7. Once done, spread Chex Mix out on wax paper on the counter to cool. ENJOY!

Notes from original poster I used 7 quart crock pot, but recipe can be cut in half and made in a smaller crock pot.

Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container to munch on during the week.
