9 cups snack mix


  • 2 cups cone-shaped corn snacks (such as Bugles®)

  • 2 cups cheese-flavored crackers (such as Cheez-It®)

  • 2 cups small pretzels

  • 1 cup crispy corn cereal squares (such as Corn Chex®)

  • 1 cup mini shredded wheat cereal squares (Optional)

  • 1 cup pecan halves

  • ½ cup butter, melted

  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

  • 1 ½ teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

  • ¾ teaspoon Cajun seasoning

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).

  2. Combine cone-shaped corn snacks, cheese crackers, pretzels, corn cereal squares, mini shredded wheat squares, and pecan halves in a large bowl. Whisk butter, maple syrup, Worcestershire sauce, Cajun seasoning, and cayenne pepper in a separate bowl. Pour butter mixture over snack mixture and toss lightly to coat. Spread mixture into a 10x15-inch jelly roll pan.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until snacks are lightly toasted and liquid has been absorbed, about 1 hour; stir every 15 minutes.
