Big Game Snack Mix

Leave a comment

I’m always looking for something different that Mr. Meat Eater can munch on while watching sports on TV.  If I don’t, he will eat me out of house and home.

I found this recipe in a small community cookbook and while I knew I would like it, I wasn’t sure if Meat Eater would.  The reason?  It’s on the sweet side.  He likes snacks that are SPICY and make him sweat.   I was pleasantly surprised when he loved it.  I think it’s the combination of ingredients mixed with the honey that makes it so good.

It’s perfect for parties, tailgating, and just plain snacking!

Big Game Snack Mix

4 cups rice or corn chex cereal~ I used rice chex
1 1/2 cups mini pretzels
1 cup pecan halves
1/3 cup butter
1/4 cup honey

Preheat oven to 350º.

In a large baking dish, combine the cereal, pretzels, and pecans and set aside. I used a disposable aluminum baking pan.

Melt butter in a small saucepan. Stir in the honey and blend well.

Pour over cereal mix in the pan and stir carefully making sure all ingredients are well coated.

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until all ingredients are lightly glazed, stirring occasionally.

Remove from oven and let cool slightly; then spread on wax paper to cool completely. I spread mine on a parchment paper lined baking sheet until it was completely cool. I stored it in a Rubbermaid container.

Makes about 6.5 cups
