Marianne's Mix

Pairs Well With


3 cubes butter or margarine
¼ cup Worcestershire Sauce
2 teaspoons each: garlic salt, onion salt and celery salt
1 pound mixed nuts
1 12-ounce package shredded wheat squares
1 6-ounce package crisp rice cereal
1 6-ounce package plain cheerios
1 6-ounce package small pretzel sticks, twists or nuggets


In a small saucepan, melt butter or margarine. Stir in Worcestershire sauce and seasoned salts. Remove from hat and let stand to blend. Meanwhile, in a large roasting pan, combine nuts, cereals, and pretzels. Pour butter sauce over this mixture and mix lightly but well.

Bake in an uncovered pan in 225 degree oven over about 2 hours. Stir lightly about every 20 minutes. Spread out on absorbent paper or heavy brown paper to cool. Keep crisp by storing in an airtight tin container—after thorough cooling, naturally.
