It never fails. If we’re going camping, I’m making chex mix. It’s great for munching around the fire or refueling after a long hike. I love the fact that it’s low-maintenance (i.e., no-baking), which is just what I need right before a big trip. Even Andy likes this, in spite of the fact that he won’t go anywhere near a bottle of ranch dressing.
The only downside is the fact that this stuff is highly addicting. As in, someone take the bowl away from me because I’m practically double-fisting this into my mouth. So make it for a big group – or don’t say that I didn’t warn you if you eat the entire batch.
Ranch Chex Mix
2 cups mini pretzel twists
5 cups chex or Crispix cereal
5 cups cheese crackers (Cheez-Its, Cheese Nips, or your favorite off-brand)
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons ranch dressing mix (or one 1 oz. packet)
In a large bowl, toss the cereal, pretzels and crackers together. Drizzle the oil over the cereal mixture and stir gently to coat. Sprinkle the dry dressing mix over the cereal mixture and toss gently to coat. Store in an airtight container.
