Nuts & Bolts

'Tis the season to start preparing all the yummy festive snacks…  A classic - it's always a good idea to have Nuts & Bolts Mix on hand. I'll make a huge roaster full, bag and store in the freezer. Then when we get the munchies or are having a lazy afternoon watching our favourite Christmas movies we have the perfect snack. I've also noticed that regardless of what company is over (kids or adults), they always gravitate towards Nuts & Bolts leaving the bowl quickly emptied.

Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Cook Time: 2 Hours | Makes: Lots

12 cups cheerios
6 crispex or chex
6 cups shreddies
6 cups gold fish
1 bag bugels
1 bag stick pretzels 
2 cups peanuts (optional)1 1/2 cups margarine

3/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp soya sauce

- Combine all dry ingredients in large roasting pan.
- In small saucepan, melt margarine and stir in all seasonings. Bring to a boil, then cool.
- Pour over cereal mixture, stirring to coat.
- Place roaster in 250 degree oven for 2 hours, stirring every 15 minutes.
