Step 1

Place cereals and pretzels in large roaster. Sprinkle with spices, butter chunks and nuts. Toast slowly at 250 degrees F for 45 minutes. Stir often to coat everything evenly. Cool and store in airtight containers.


Adjust everything according to preference and availability. I reduce the butter considerably and just stir it more often to ensure the flavourings are evenly distributed. Popcorn is a good addition as well but gets stale faster than the cereals etc.
