Recipe of the Week -- Barbecue Snack Mix

I've been in a snack mix mood lately. With all the farmer's markets and such we've been doing, I always have to make sure that I have snacks and drinks for the kids. They've been eating a lot of trail mix, granola and crackers, but I just remembered this recipe. It's always a hit when I make it and it's super easy to make.

Now, this recipe is technically not mine. It's straight from the Chex mix box, but it's really good and a little different than other chex mixes.

Barbecue Snack Mix

3 cups Rice Chex cereal
3 cups Corn Chex cereal
1 1/2 cups pretzel twists
1 1/2 cups bite size cheese crackers
3/4 cup honey roasted peanuts
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1 tbls. vegetable oil
3/4 tsp. onion powder
3/4 tsp. garlic powder

In a large bowl, mix cereals, pretzels, crackers and peanuts. In a small bowl, stir together remaining ingredients; pour over cereal mixture, stirring evenly until everything is coated. Pour snack mix into a 9x13 baking dish lined with foil. Bake at 250* for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Spread on wax paper to cool.
