PARTY MIX RECIPES

I am on some kind of snack mix craze lately. If you missed my Asian Wasabi Chex Mix you certainly missed out. It is a spicy blend of wasabi, soy and rice crackers along with other Asian inspired goodies.

I like doing themed snack and party mixes because then you can get the perfect one for your family. Seeing that I am moving from Waycross this week, I thought it only fitting that I make a Redneck Snack Mix in honor of my home for the last 12 years.

Summer is here and everyone is grilling and using their BBQ. Some people use BBQ as a noun and some use it as a verb.

Is it BBQ chicken, BBQed chicken, or chicken on the BBQ? It is all very confusing to me.

When I think of BBQ, I think of charcoal, smoke, outdoors, and char on my burgers, dogs, and chicken.

My Pa was the king of the BBQ (the charcoal grill)! I made my Homemade BBQ Seasoning Mix in honor of his amazing skills and the flavors he always coaxed from those coals.

HOW TO MAKE BAKED SNACK MIX

FIRST: Combine all the snacks (minus the peanuts and jerky) together in one bowl. Preheat oven to 250.

SECOND: Melt the butter. Stir the Worcestershire sauce into the melted butter. Stir in the BBQ Seasoning until combined. Pour the butter, Worcestershire, and BBQ seasoning mix over the snack mix. Stir or toss to coat the snack mix evenly.

THIRD: Pour out onto a baking sheet and spread into one layer.Bake at 250 for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. When the hour is up, remove from oven. Let cool completely.

FOURTH: Add in the honey roasted peanuts and jerky. Toss to mix. Serve with friends or store in an air-tight container for up to 1 week.

I love these snacks and grabbing them while on a road trip or after a long night of studying in college. They are inexpensive and fun to eat.

SNACK MIX OPTIONS

  • Saltines
  • Chex Cereal
  • Popcorn
  • Peanuts
  • Pretzels
  • Cheese Balls
  • Cheez-Its
  • Funyuns
  • Bugles
  • Goldfish
  • Nuts
  • Potato Stix
  • Corn Chips

HOW LONG DOES SNACK MIX LAST?

It will last up to a week if stored in an air-tight container. If you are storing for more than 3 days, I would leave the beef sticks out and add them at the last minute. The beef sticks will add moisture to the mix that will make it stale faster.

WHAT IF I CAN’T FIND ONE OF THE INGREDIENTS?

This is a Redneck snack mix for a reason! Use what you have in your pantry or what you can find! Just make up the volume with another ingredient. 14 cups of dry snack ingredients are what you need.

WHAT IF I CAN’T FIND THE MINI SALTINE CRACKERS?

You can use regular-sized saltines and break them into smaller pieces if you can’t find the mini ones.

Looking for a snack mix to take to a party you’ve been invited to? How about a quick appetizer you can make ahead of time for a get-together that you are hosting and are already stressed to the max? Check out these snack mixes, both sweet and savory, to fit your special occasion!

Great recipe! I think I might add hot fries instead of pork rinds next time to add a bigger spice component.
