My kid’s teacher asked for ‘non-sweet treats’ for a Halloween party. A search of Allrecipes showed there were very few like that, so I took some party mix recipes and made my own. Pretzel sticks = wooden stakes. Animal-shaped crackers = wild beasts. Toasted rice cereal = tombstones.
Original recipe makes 12 servings
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
7 cups crisp rice cereal squares (such as Rice Chex®)
1 cup roasted pumpkin seed kernels
1 cup pretzel sticks
1 cup goldfish crackers
1 hr 45 mins
- Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Place butter in a 9×13-inch baking dish; melt in oven while it preheats.
- Stir Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and seasoned salt into melted butter. Gradually stir rice cereal squares, pumpkin seeds, pretzel sticks, and goldfish crackers into butter mixture until evenly coated.
- Bake in the preheated oven, stirring every 15 minutes, until crisp and fragrant, about 1 hour. Transfer party mix to paper towel-lined plates to cool.
