Ingredients

  • 9 cups Corn Chex™ cereal or Wheat Chex™ cereal (or combination)
  • 2 cups bite-size pretzel twists
  • 2 cups bite-size Cheddar cheese crackers
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup Buffalo wing sauce
  • 1 package (1 oz) ranch dressing and seasoning mix

Steps

  • 1
    In large microwavable bowl, mix cereal, pretzels and crackers; set aside.
  • 2
    In small microwavable bowl, microwave butter uncovered on High 40 seconds or until melted. Stir in Buffalo wing sauce and ranch dressing mix. Pour over cereal mixture; stir until evenly coated.
  • 3
    Microwave uncovered on High 4 to 5 minutes, thoroughly stirring every 2 minutes. Spread on cooking parchment paper or paper towels to cool. Store in airtight container.

  • For those who like a lot of heat, stir 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper into the butter mixture for a real kick.
  • Make this mix your own by experimenting with different ingredients. Swap out the Cheddar cheese crackers for Parmesan crackers, or use pretzel rods instead of twists. Roasted peanuts also make a great addition!
