Anna’s favourite cereal snack mix

This snack mix is a great host gift during the holidays.



  • 1/2 cup (115 g) unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons celery salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon 15 mL) dry hot sauce powder or hot sauce (optional)
  • 4 to 5 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cups (100 g) Shreddies
  • 2 cups (50 g) Cheerios
  • 2 cups (50 g) Crispix cereal
  • 2 cups (100 g) pretzel twists or squares
  • 1 cup (160 g) whole almonds
  • 1 cup (150 g) unsalted peanuts


  1. Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C) and line a large baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat and whisk in the celery salt, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, mustard powder, cinnamon, hot sauce powder (or hot sauce) if using, and Worcestershire.
  3. Combine the cereals, pretzels, peanuts, and almonds in a large mixing bowl and pour the spiced butter overtop. Toss well (using your hands is the quickest and most effective) and then spread this mixture on the baking tray.
  4. Bake for about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the cereal browns a little. Let the mix cool on the tray on a wire rack. Scoop into an airtight container. If gifting, pack the mix into a cookie tin or a tall mason jar, along with a label and ribbon.

Make Ahead Tip: You can store the baked cereal mix in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 weeks (but GOOD LUCK staying away from it that long—put a lock on it!).
