    Default Reindeer Snack

    This delightful mixture of favorite snack foods has a spicy chili powder kick.

    Prep Time: 10 min
    Total Time: 25 min
    Makes: 18 servings (1/2 cup each)

    3 cups popped popcorn
    3 cups Bugles® nacho cheese flavor corn snacks
    2 cups pretzel sticks
    1 cup Cheerios® cereal
    1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
    1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    1 garlic clove, very finely chopped, or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

    1. Heat oven to 300ºF.
    2. In large bowl, mix popcorn, snacks, pretzels and cereal. In small bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Drizzle over popcorn mixture, tossing until evenly coated. Spread in ungreased 15x10X1-inch pan.
    3. Bake uncovered 15 minutes, stirring twice; cool. Store loosely covered at room temperature up to 2 weeks.

    Microwave Directions: In 3-quart microwavable casserole or bowl, microwave butter, chili powder and garlic uncovered on High about 1 minute or until butter is melted; stir. Stir in popcorn, snacks, pretzels and cereal. Toss until well coated. Microwave uncovered 6 to 8 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes, until toasted; cool.

    Special Touch: Make party favors out of this addictive snack mix. Wrap 1-cup portions in holiday-themed plastic wrap, and tie with green and red ribbon. Personalize packages by attaching a small gift tag with a guest’s name written on each.

    Variation: Make Sweet Reindeer Snack when you use original Bugles®, replace chili powder with cinnamon, omit garlic and add 2 cups of red and green candy-coated chocolate candies.
