Party Mix

This is kind of like two things in one. I made a batch of chex mix and I made a batch of ranch oyster crackers and then I mixed them together. This makes a ton and it only took about 20 minutes.

Party Mix
9 c. crispix cereal (or chex)
2 c. cheese-its
1 large can of mixed nuts
2 c. pretzels
1 bag of oyster crackers
6 T. butter, melted
2 T. Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 t. season salt
3/4 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. onion powder
1 pkg. dry ranch dressing
3/4 c. vegetable oil
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the oil and ranch dressing. Pour the oyster crackers in and coat them completely in the dressing. Spread out on a cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes at 275 degrees. While those are baking, add the cereal, cheese-its and nuts to a large, microwave safe mixing bowl. In a large measuring cup, mix the butter, Worcestershire, season salt, garlic and onion powder. Pour over the cereal mix and mix it to coat. Microwave for 2 minutes, then stir. Repeat until you have microwaved a total of 6 minutes. Mix in the pretzels, then spread out on a cookie sheet or wax paper to dry. When the oyster crackers are done, remove from oven and let dry also. When both are dry, mix them together. Store in a sealed container.
