Hey ILGM peeps,
I’ve been wanting to do a savory snack instead of sweet for a change as I’m bored with my peanut butter cookies. The question was what can I make savory with enough butter or oil in the recipe to make usable for medicating but will also keep for a bit? Then it hit me…Nuts and Bolts! My mom used to make this version of a home made chex mix at holidays and it was always a hit. It calls for a full stick of butter so it’s a winner and it tastes awesome. Here it is…
1 1/2 cups kix cereal
1 cup cheerios
1 cup rice chex
1 cup corn chex
2 cups cheese crackers
2 cups pretzel sticks
1 lb. peanuts or mixed nuts
1/2 cup canna-butter (1 stick)
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp celery salt
You can swap things out you don’t like. I’m not a fan of kix so I increase the other 3 cereals by 1/2 cup each.
Mix the first seven ingredients together
Melt your canna-butter and add the worcestershire sauce, garlic salt and celery salt. I add more of the last three items to my butter as I like a stronger flavor.
Stir it well and pour over the dry ingredients and mix it thoroughly but gently so you don’t crush the cereal.
Pour mixture onto 2 baking dishes and place in a 250 degree preheated oven for an hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
Once completely cool transfer to air tight container or bag and enjoy. Normally this is 20 servings (probably about a cup size but not positive)
