I am always looking for a new snack mix. I love my Texas Trash and The World's Best Snack Mix. I saw this recipe for Sweet and Spicy Honey Snack Mix, sweetened with honey and a little Frank's Red Hot Sauce... and I had to try. I took it to preschool and they loved it. It isn't as spicy as Texas Trash and it was still savory but not as sweet as The World's Best Snack Mix. I like the bagel chips - something different. This recipe is adapted from Sally's Baking Addiction!
I made a little extra sauce (1 1/2 x) but didn't need it. I ended up adding more bagel chips, more pretzels and a bag of goldfish.
Sweet and Spicy Honey Snack Mix (adapted from Sally's Baking Addiction)
9 cups of Chex Cereal (I used Crispix)
2 cups salted mixed nuts
2 cups mini pretzels
1 cup bagel chips (I used more)
1 1/2 sticks butter
6 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup hot sauce (I used Frank's Red Hot Sauce)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 Tbsp salt (I used Lawry's Seasoned Salt)
1 tsp chili powder
Preheat oven to 375. Mix first four ingredients in a large foil pan. Place the remaining ingredients in a small saucepan. Stir until butter is melted. Pour over the dry ingredients and gently toss to coat. Bake for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Pour onto wax paper on counter top and allow to cool. Snack mix will crisp up as it cools. Cover tightly and store at room temperature for up to 2-3 weeks.
