I warn you yet again this stuff is HIGHLY ADDICTIVE!  It’s almost as addictive as our Spicy Oyster Crackers.  The minute I pull this out of the oven if I’m not diving in, hands are flying around behind me to get a quick hot grab.

No need for prep pics for this one. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.

Pour the oyster crackers, rice cereal (Chex Cereal), cheese crackers, Bugles, peanuts, and pretzels in a large roasting pan and gently toss.

I use my lasagna pan. I do not recommend a baking sheet unless you are really talented and stirring and keeping it all in the pan.

Slowly drizzle the oil evenly over the mix, toss again. Sprinkle the ranch mix, garlic powder, onion powder, and dried dill weed evenly over the top. Gently mix to evenly coat and bake.

    1. These types of snack mix last at least 2 weeks, sometimes longer. It would make great gifts during the holidays!

    1. No, it is a large batch and the air fryer frustrates me with its size. But do check back and let us know if you try it. Thanks, Kimber!
