Tonight is another sleepover night, and the last time we did this with a gaggle of boys, I discovered they love a homemade snack mix.
So does Paul.
Seriously, those boys (big and small) can go through POUNDS of snack mix in a weekend. I do not exaggerate.
I should make batches with the entire boxes of cereal, but that would take up way too much time and oven space so I make it in small batches.
The secret is doubling the amount of the seasoning mixture that is called for on a regular recipe. As long as you spread out the mixture liberally enough on the baking sheets and it dries out, the seasoning mixture will absorb, dry, and be flavorful and delicious.
