Take chex mix to a whole new level of flavor adding packaged focaccia sticks, Italian dressing, and Parmesan cheese. Mama Mia, that's good!

  • Servings: 8-10

Ingredients:

2 cups Rice Chex Cereal
2 cups Corn Chex Cereal
1 pkg (5 Oz.) All Natural New York Style Baked Quatro Formaggio Focaccia Sticks, broken into bite-size pieces
1 pkg (5 Oz.) Aged Cheddar Cheese Waffle Fries, broken into bite-size pieces
1 pkg True North Lightly Roasted Almonds, pistachio, walnuts and pecans (mix
¾ cup Margarine or Butter
2½ Tbsp (bottled) Italian Salad Dressing
½ tsp Italian Seasoning
3½ Tbsp Grated Parmesan Cheese, divided use
¼ tsp Garlic Salt

Directions:

Combine Rice Chex, Corn Chex, broken focaccia sticks, broken waffle fries, and nut mix in a 13 x 9 x 2-inch (or slightly larger) baking pan. In a small saucepan, combine margarine, salad dressing, and Italian seasoning; cook over medium-low heat until margarine is melted; stir in 2-1/2 tablespoons Parmesan. Drizzle over cereal mixture evenly and toss to coat. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan and garlic salt. Bake, uncovered, at 300 degrees for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Turn out onto paper towel-lined tray to cool. Store in airtight containers. Makes about 2-3/4 quarts.

This is a snack mix I came up with about 2 years ago. It has become one of my family's favorites. It's easy to make and disappears very quickly.
