This filling no-bake medley can be put together in minutes, and it stores well in an airtight container. With a hint of garlic and yummy Parmesan cheese, the pretzel-and-cereal combination makes a wonderful after-school treat. -Nancy Zimmerman, Cape May Court House, New Jersey

I recall making this recipe when it was featured in the Quick Cooking magazine. I revised the recipe to make it more to my tastes! Here is my version of this recipe: 4 to 8 cups Crispix cereal, 4 to 8 cups miniature pretzel twists or sour dough pretzel nuggets, 3/4 cup canola or vegetable oil, 1 Tbsp. Salad Supreme seasoning, 2 tsp. garlic powder, 1 package Italian dressing mix, 3 packages of pretzel sticks (one ounce each), 1 package flavored croutons, 4 cups cheese crackers OR goldfish cheddar cheese-flavored crackers. I used a large roasting pan to combine the cereal, croutons, crackers and pretzels. I whisked the oil, garlic, Salad Supreme mix, salad dressing mix which I poured over cereal mixture and tossed well to coat. I sprinkled with Parmesan cheese (about 4 Tbsp.) and tossed again to fully coat cereal mixture. This is a good recipe and it doesn't require any baking! Thank you, Nancy Zimmerman, for sharing this recipe! When I made this mix, I took it to my Chapel for our Sunday morning coffee break. Of course, this was 8 years back, but I still have this recipe and actually, I use other snack mix recipes, too! This one does bring out an Italian flavor! DELowenstein

This had way too much garlic. If I made it again I would cut the garlic in half

I made this for the first time years ago, and my teenage daughter is always begging me to make it. It is delicious!

This is my go-to snack recipe for get-togethers with our friends. Everyone loves it, and there are never any leftovers.
