Everyone loves this when I make it—it’s my go-to mix. I put it all together in a large bowl and then put in separate pans to bake, just makes it easier.

I use my roasting pan sprayed with cooking spray, and it couldn't be easier; just toss everything in the same pan! I don't measure much, either, as some of the snack foods aren't available in the sizes listed when I shop. I just throw everything in there, stirring occasionally, and let it have a fiesta in the oven for a couple of hours! (I rated this 5 stars, but they don't come up with the review.)

Made this for summer vacation and by the time the week was over, I had made 4 batches! The first 2 batches didn't last more than one night!

Made this last year and everyone raved about it. I will be making it again for my gift baskets. :) I would recommend pouring seasoning into the bowl and toss then lay on cookie sheets.

As I was making this, I for some reason thought, "This is going to taste terrible." Maybe because it didn't look like there was enough seasoning to coat all of the mix. So glad I was wrong. This is delicious!

Excellent! Something a little different than the norm. I took this camping and it was gone the first night!

When made 1st batch while pouring liquid some snacks got overly saturated, too much liquid. In making 2nd batch I poured the liquid into food safe spray bottle and sprayed snacks while tossing to coat. Great results using less liquids.

Great alternative to regular snack mix. The next time I make it, I might try to reduce the amount of butter and oil. I used cheetos instead of cheese balls which worked just as well. When I took this to work, people raved and many asked for the recipe.
