Based on another review about the oiliness I cut the oil back to 2/3 cup and used 2/3 of the package of ranch dressing. My family likes less salt and fat so the modifications were perfect for us. Great snacking material Bea. As you said nice change from the other party mix and a lot easier.Thanks. Read More

This was soooo good!! It is absolutely addicting. I was worried it was going to be greasy but it wasn't at all. I gave it to my parents for Christmas and they said it was the best mix I've made for them yet. Read More

I agree--it's too oily but I solved that problem. I laid out newspapers on the table and put paper towels on top and spread the mixture on that. It absorbed the extra oiliness. The stored it in zipper bags. It makes so much that I can use it more than once and have leftovers. It is Very addicting! I love it! Read More

Be prepared! This makes A LOT of party mix! Two of the really large round Tupperware bowls. Which is a good thing really. Very tasty and quite addictive. I made it for my 4th of July party and a lot got eaten but there was so much I brought the leftovers to work the next day and when it was gone people were still looking around for the bowl. The only change I would suggest is adding more nuts. They kind of got lost in all the crackers and cereal. Read More

I make this and send it to family and friends who are away at college usually around midterm and just before final exams...I ship it in a small new trash bucket. This snack mix is consumed immediately and is much enjoyed because it is a little spicier. Hats off to Dana!:) Read More

Yum! I couldn't find most of the ingredients in the sizes listed here. My rice cereal oyster crackers and cheese-filled sandwich crackers were available in smaller sizes. I reduced the oil since my ingredients weighed less and I omitted the nuts (just not a fan of them in party mix). My favorite part are the cheese crackers! Read More
