Seriously, this is the best party mix you will ever eat! My mom made it every Christmas and I have no idea where she found the recipe. You're not going to eat this every day, so when I show you the recipe, don't freak out over the bacon drippings and buttuh (that was me impersonating Paula Dean).
I always use whole bags of pretzels, porky rinds, shoestring potatoes, peanuts, and wheat chex. Throw it all together in a large baking pan. You can really just add anything at this point that you like.
Then heat on the stove in a separate pan:
1/2 pound of butter or margarine
1/2 cup of bacon drippings
4 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
2 tsp tobasco
1 tsp garlic powder
When this is all melted and heated through, pour over snack mix.
Bake at 250 degrees for and hour and a half.
You'll need to stir with a wooden spoon every 15 minutes.
(That 15 minute part is a pain, but so well worth it!)
Munch away and enjoy!
This makes a huge batch, but you can freeze part of it and save it for a special day. It tastes just as good when it comes out of the freezer.
See you tonight for It's a Party!
