Nuts and Bolts

One of my favorite snacks and especially great around the holidays.

(family recipe)

3 cups rice chex
3 cups corn chex
2 cups wheat chex
4 cups apple-cinnamon cheerios
6 cups stick pretzels
2 cups cashew pieces

3/4 cup melted butter
8 drops Tabasco sauce
3 tsp Worcestershire sauce (Lea and Perrins - generics just aren't good enough)
3 tsp celery salt
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic salt
4 tsp lemon juice

Mix cereals, nuts and pretzels in a large stock pot or roasting pan. In separate bowl, mix all other seasonings. Pour liberally over cereal and stir to coat thoroughly. Depending on the width of your roasting pan, you may want to spread the mix over several 1-2 inch deep dishes or cookie sheets / broiler pans. Bake at 250 degrees for 60-90 minutes, checking every 20 minutes and stirring until it starts to appear dry.
