World's Best Snack Mix

I love munchies! This is one of my dieting downfalls- I would rather munch and snack most of the time instead of eating a meal.

This is such a good recipe! I love this with my favorite SONIC large Diet Coke.
I got this years ago from a friend that I knew at church. Shelly is a busy mom of 4 and a great cook. You will love the combination of the brown sugar, chili powder, etc. Make it the next time you have a family gathering! It makes a lot so plan to share with friends.

The World's Best Snack Mix

1 box Crispix Cereal  (currently it is 12. oz)
1 bag pretzels (15 - 16 oz)
1 bag Fritos (9 3/4  oz)
1 bag Pepperidge farms goldfish (6.6 oz)
2 bag Bugles ( 7.5 oz)
1 lb mixed nuts (or more to suit your taste)

2 cups brown sugar
4 sticks butter
1 ½ t. curry powder
4 t. garlic powder
5 t. chili powder
3 t. worcestershire sauce

Divide the dry ingredients evenly between 2 large foil roasting pans.
Melt sauce ingredients together and pour over the dry mix. Bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour. Stir every 20 minutes. ( I often divide the sauce ingredients between two saucepans so it is easier to distribute between the two large foil pans.  For example, two sticks butter in one sauce pan, with 1 cup brown sugar, 3/4 - 1 tsp curry powder, 2 tsp garlic powder, 2 1/2  tsp chili powder and 1 1/2 tsp worcestershire)

Pour onto kitchen table, lined with wax paper and allow to cool. This is addicting-but you will love it!
