Anyhow, the wonderhubs has a life-long aversion to pretzels, & I am currently (involuntarily) participating in an aversion to gluten. My solution was to come up with a gluten-free snack mix, where he could pick around those nazzzty pretzel pieces.
I’d been seeing “Muddy Buddies” & “Chex Snack” mixes done in the crock pot on various blogs. That sounded so much more exciting to me than heating the oven/house for an hour or two while toasting the mix. (If your slow cooker, like mine, does not have a vent, you will need to use a towel to absorb the “perspiration” that comes off the mix as it cooks.)
Here’s my recipe:
¼ cup mustard powder
¼ cup water
½ cup butter
½ cup honey
3 cups Corn Bran Crunch™ cereal
3 cups Honey Nut Chex™ cereal
3 cups gluten free pretzels
2 cups gluten free rice crackers
1 cup sliced almonds
1 cup bacon crumbles
…because you want to TRIPLE the recipe!
