Butterscotch Snack Mix

butterscotch-snack-mix-done

Need to satisfy an extra big snack craving?  This is your recipe.  It makes a bunch.  And I warn you – if you start munching it, you won’t be able to stop.  I adapted the recipe from an old Taste of Home magazine.  The original called for Crispix Cereal, which I couldn’t find.  Do they even make that anymore?  I also changed a few other things.

Here’s what you’ll need:

butterscotch-snack-mix-ingr

cinnamon graham crackers, broken into bite-size pieces (I used two of the 3 packs that came in the box)

1 large box of rice chex cereal

a generous cup of pretzels

1 cup pecans

2/3 cup butter

1/2 cup honey

1 bag butterscotch chips

Combine the crackers, pretzels, nuts and cereal in a large bowl.  In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter and honey together.  Drizzle this over the mix and stir to combine.  Put it out onto two large cookie sheets that have been sprayed with cooking spray.  Bake for 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees.  Stir several times during the cooking.  (Warning – cereal dropped on the oven burner stinks)

Cool the mix completely before stirring in the butterscotch chips.  Store in an air tight container. 

Now I need to go put the lid on the bowl of mix the kids left sitting next to me.

  1. I love butterscotch so you got me at the title. These little mixes are so fun and so handy. I will be trying this one.

  2. What a great non-chocolate snack!!!

  3. ooh…these sound yummy….I will have to make a TRIPLE batch of these and won’t be able to stop myself from digging into these yummies!

  4. I just made this to bring to a party tonight. SO. DELICIOUS!!! I don’t know if there will be any left by the time we leave home!

  5. Tracy – I’m not sure as I haven’t tried but a slow cooker is eenlstiasly the same thing as cooking something in the oven on a low temp for a long period of time. If you have a lidded casserole dish, like a dutch oven, you can cook it in that in the oven. I would guess about 250 degrees. Hope it works out for you!

  6. I love how Google took me to this magical website where I found a creative way to end my girl-problem-induced munchies.
    If only I had chex cereal and pretzels!! D:
