"Actually, I HAD prepared this snack mix before and I'm making it again 6/29/13!I made the following adjustments to meet my tastes: I just used: 4 cups each of Corn Chex & Rice Chex, 1 package(12-oz.)mini pretzel twists2 cups dry roasted peanuts1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce1 tsp. seasoned salt1/8 to 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper3/4 cup vegetable oil used instead of butterI used oil instead of using butter!For me, this adaptation worked out!Thank you for this recipe! Snack mixes for me are something which I prepare frequently and take them for our Coffeetime at our chapel. People enjoy the various snack mixes I bring and I've had to take inventory so when our supply of snackmixes is low, I can turn to a # of TOH mix recipes I've used over time!DELowenstein"
