Healthy Party Snack Mix

Party mix has always been a tradition in our home. I lightened my mom's recipe, replacing margarine with heart-healthy olive oil. No one even noticed. —Melissa Hansen, Rochester, Minnesota

    I love the store-bought Chex Mix snack stuff -- this is very close!

    We could taste and smell the olive oil. We prefer original recipe.

    My kids absolutely loved this. I doubled the seasoning like most people did, it was excellent.

    Omitted peanuts and added whole grain fish crackers to cut fat.

    I've never made the classic party mix, but thought this one interesting because of the healthy changes. Unfortunately, I found it very bland, even with the addition of some cajun seasoning. It might be better with double the seasoning as KWhitehead suggested, but that would cancel out the healthy aspect.

    I doubled the seasoning, and it was delicious! (worchestershire sauce, seasoned salt [I used cajun seasoning instead], and garlic powder)
