Step 1-Make delicious food they can't resist.
I can't believe I am posting this-it's something of a family secret recipe, much like my chili, but it's too delicious not to share. Every family has different 'holiday' food that they ONLY make once a year around Christmas. This is one of those traditions in my family!
Daddy Lou's Nuts & Bolts
1 1/2 Cups Margarine
2 Tbls Worcestrshire sauce
10 Cups Cheerios
4-5 Cups Shreddies*
2-3 Cups peanuts*
4 Cups pretzel sticks
1 Tbls celery salt
2 tsp onion salt
1 tsp garlic salt
*I like to put more Shreddies in, since they hold the spices and are SO delicious. I am also not a big fan of peanuts so I don't put as many in. To each his own!
Mix cereals, peanuts and pretzels in a large roasting pan
sorry, I took this pic before I added the pretzels
Melt butter and add Worcestershire sauce.
I made a goof and didn't use enough butter in this picture.
The sauce should be much more yellow!
Add the butter mixture to the dry and toss well. Combine the spices in a small bowl and sprinkle over the cereal. Bake at 200 degrees F for about 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally.
And here's the finished product! YUM!
Let cool and store in air tight containers.
This is what I will be giving to my lucky neighbours and friends....but whatever shall I put them in? Stay tuned!
