Who doesn’t love a good snack mix? I know I do!! This Cheeto’s Snack Mix is one of my most favorites and I know you will love it too!
YES! You are seeing Cheeto’s!!
First… if there is Cheeto’s in anything I am probably going to love it. I am sucker for a Cheeto for sure. I am an original Cheeto girl but I will not turn down a puffy cheeto or a spicy one. Actually, the spicy version would be devious in this snack mix… I am going to have to try that next time.
So many YUMMIES!!
Now I know when you look at the ingredient list it may seem a little strange, but trust me when you take your first bite you will totally understand why I love it. The oatmeal cereal mixed with the cheetos, peanuts and pretzels all by themselves make for a great mix but when you add in the butter mixture it becomes AMAZING!
SO this snack mix was first introduced to me by my sis-in-law Mary. I was at their house one day and there was a big bag on the counter with cheetos (and some other stuff) and it caught my eye. Ever since I was a little girl I loved cheetos, so I had to find out what this mix was. Mary told me to try it and then she would tell what it was all about, and of course I did and I loved it. I recognized the oatmeal cereal and the pretzels but there was something different about it all, something that made it super rich…garlic powder & butter.
Over the years I have had it many times at Mary’s but this year I decided to make it on my own for some gift baskets I was putting together, but I decided to add in a few things just to make it a little different from the original version. First I added in nuts, and then some worcesterhsire sauce to the butter mixture…both of which I love and it really did add a depth to the mix that was so, so good! You could also throw in some M&M’s for a fun little surprise.
YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS NOW!!
