"This is another recipe which I'd prepared-I admit it WAS quite some time back and when the recipe was featured in Taste of Home! I scaled back on the measurements

of the ingredients used: 3 cups Bugles,
2 to 3 cups mini pretzels, 1 package (7-1/2-oz.) Fritos, 1 cup vegetable oil, 1 packet of Italian or Ranch dressing mix & 1 cup of mixed nuts or peanuts. This too,
was shared during our Sunday coffee break! Thank you, Sharon, Nichols, for sharing this recipe!"

"On top of being fantastic, it's easy to substitute other ingredients. I like to use the thin triangular shaped triscuits, for instance."
