Barbecue Muncher Mix

Looking for a twist on standard party mix? My family enjoys this barbecue-seasoned snack at Christmas and throughout the year. It also makes a nice addition to a holiday gift basket. —Mrs. Dean Holmes, Altamont, Kansas

    I rated this recipe as written, which wasn't great! If I make again, I'd add more BBQ sauce and keep an eye on the pretzels as they can easily get a charred taste (stir often). With those simple changes, this would be a good mix.

    I added more barbecue sauce to suit my personal preference and the snack mix tasted very good. I would make it again, and adjust it as needed.

    This has no bbq flavor at all. I will never make it again. We are using this for bird food.
