Spicy Cheddar Snack Mix - chex cereal, crackers, and nuts in s roasting pan

It’s just like making regular Chex mix, simple and delicious. 

Preheat your oven 250°.

Add the Chex cereal, crackers and peanuts to a large roasting pan. Whisk the butter, ranch packet, red pepper flakes, parmesan cheese, and Worcestershire sauce together in a small bowl.

Pour the sauce over the mix and stir gently to coat. Bake for 1 hour stirring every 15 minutes.

Let cool completely before storing in an air-tight container.

I chose pepper jack crackers and hot & spicy cheddar crackers to give this mix some extra spunky flavor.  You can choose whichever type of cheese crackers you like.
