Hot and Spicy Party Mix

My son Daniel and I always make party mix at holiday time. We have been tweaking our recipe for several years, and this Hot and Spicy version is one we enjoy, and I think you will like it too. This would be great to make for your New Year's Eve party or just anytime.

Hot and Spicy Party Mix
10 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons Sriracha hot sauce
2 tablespoons chipotle tabasco sauce
2 teaspoons seasoned salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
3 cups corn Chex cereal
3 cups rice Chex cereal
3 cups wheat Chex cereal
3 cups Goldfish crackers
3 cups Goldfish pretzel crackers
2 cups deluxe nuts

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Line a large roasting pan with heavy aluminum foil. Melt butter in the pan in the oven, then stir in Worcestershire sauce, Sriracha sauce, tabasco sauce, seasoned salt, garlic salt, and onion powder. Stir in corn Chex, rice Chex, and wheat Chex, stirring until evenly coated. Add Goldfish crackers, Goldfish pretzels, and nuts, stirring all until coated with seasonings. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool, store in airtight container.

We like to use Worcestershire sauce, Sriracha sauce, and chipotle tabasco sauce to spice up our party mix.

Goldfish pretzels and the deluxe mixed nuts are additions we like too.

I like to line my roasting pan with foil for the party mix just so there will be less clean up afterward. There are enough other dishes to wash.

We love this Hot and Spicy version of Party Mix at our house. How do you make your party mix for the holidays?

  3. Hi Anita, is your household getting back to normal? It is so quiet here at home but there is still much clutter that needs to be dealt with. Your snack mix looks like a sure hit for a party or snacking anytime. You always have good things to share and nice pictures.---------- Shannon
