Teaming with savory flavors and a variety of crunchy textures, I have made and taken this Easy Seasoned Snack Mix to lots of gatherings and get-togethers over the years where it’s been met with rave reviews. “I can’t stop eating it. What’s in this?!” It’s also a great addition to our ball game snack bags and a snack we like to travel with. Put it in a pretty bag and tie with a ribbon for an easy and appealing teacher gift!
Easy Seasoned Snack Mix
- 1 bag pretzels (sticks or knots)
- 1 bag oyster crackers (I like the larger ones)
- 1 box cheese crackers
- 1 box wheat crackers
- 1 bag Bugles chips
- 2 cups cooking oil
- 6 teaspoons dill weed (When I’m accidentally out of dill weed, I use 3-4 drops of dill essential oil.)
- 2 teaspoons lemon pepper
- 6 tablespoons (or 2 packages) dry ranch dressing mix
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
Dump crackers, pretzels, and chips into a very large bowl or a large paper grocery sack. Stir or shake to mix. To the two cups of cooking oil, add the dill weed, lemon pepper, ranch dressing mix, onion powder, and garlic powder. Wisk until well combined. Pour over cracker mix. Carefully stir (or shake if in a bag) until oil mixture is evenly distributed.
Spread out onto 2 or 3 large pans. Bake at 200° for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool. Store in an airtight container. Freeze for long-term storage.
You can’t mess this up. Use whatever crackers appeal to you, and the amounts are flexible. This recipe makes plenty to share, gift, and freeze for later!
