A Christmas Staple in the Mullis House!

Everyone has traditions they keep for the holidays. We have traditional music, decorations, activities and, of course, traditional foods we trot out just for the occassion.

In our house we have a traditional snack mix that we just love. The recipe is from the 1970s, and is devoid of any Chex cereal like most snack mixes use. My mother made it every Christmas and I do too. So, if you want something a little different you might just like this. We sure do!

Snack Mix

4 cups Cheerios
1-1/2 cups mixed nuts
1-1/2 cups croutons
1 cup pretzel sticks

1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt (powder works just as well)
1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)

Heat oven to 275°.

In ungreased 13"x9"x2" pan, mix cereal, nuts, croutons and pretzel sticks.  Blend remaining ingredients.  Pour over ceral mixture; mix well.

Bake uncovered for 45 minutes, stirring occassionally.
