Herbed Cashew Snack Mix

Herbed Cashew Snack Mix

Next time you need to nibble, whip up a batch of this crunchy cereal treat!



  1. Heat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In ungreased 13 x 9-inch pan, mix cereals, pretzel sticks and cashews.
  3. In 1-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.
  4. Remove from heat; stir in tarragon, onion powder and pepper sauce.
  5. Pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated.
  6. Bake uncovered about 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until hot.
  7. Serve warm or cool.
  8. Store in airtight container.

Yield: 12 servings (1/2 cup each)

Cover and refrigerate the cooled snack mix for up to a week. If you'd like, spread the snack mix in a pan and warm about 10 minutes in a 300 degrees F oven.

Mixed nuts—in place of the cashews—adds even more variety to this medley of munchies!
