Microwave Recipe For Snack Mix

This microwave recipe combines crunch, salt, sweet, and other flavors for a fun snack mix that’s simple to make and can be stored for up to 5 days.


Two 1-ounce packages of Ranch dressing mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 cups crisp oatmeal cereal squares
3 cups corn and rice cereal
3 cups crisp wheat cereal squares
2 cups pretzel sticks
1 cup dried cherries or other dried fruit
1 cup candy-coated chocolate pieces

Before we get to the instructions here’s a video showing you how to make your own ranch dressing mix instead of buying the pre-packaged kind.

In a large, microwave-safe glass bowl**, add the ranch dressing mix and vegetable oil. Whisk this together until well-mixed. Add the three different cereal and pretzels, and then stir until the ingredients are well-incorporated.

Put the bowl with the dressing mix and cereal into the microwave at High temperature for two minutes. Remove the bowl and stir the cereal mixture. Return it to the microwave for two more minutes set at High temperature. Remove the bowl and stir the mixture again.

Next, place a sheet of wax paper on a baking sheet. Spread the cereal mixture in an even layer over the wax paper. Let this cool for at least 30 minutes. After it has cooled, add the dried fruit and candy pieces and mix well.

This can be served right away or stored in an airtight container for up to five days.

** Please note, a glass bowl is recommended for use in the microwave. The ingredients in the bowl will get too hot and may either burn or melt the bowl.

I hope your mozzarella recipe turns out well and tastes good for you and your family or guests.
