I had to try this one before blogging about it just to see how it would turn out. I definitely am not disappointed - changed it up from the original recipe, but the changes are a bonus. Don't think I'll have any trouble at all finding people to eat this snack mix. The Ranch seasoning and hot sauce temper each other and make the perfect combination.
4 cups Rice Chex cereal
4 cups Wheat Chex cereal
3 (6.6 oz) packages of Cheddar and Pretzel Gold Fish crackers
2 cups peanuts
1 1/2 sticks butter
5 Tbsp hot sauce
2 packets Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix
4 tsp celery seed
Combine cereal, crackers, and peanuts in a roasting pan. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine butter, hot sauce, dressing mix and celery see. When melted and combined, pour over cereal mixture and stir well. Bake at 250 for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Store in an airtight container.
