Author: Bests and Bites


  • 6 cups rice chex cereal
  • 3 cups pretzel sticks
  • 3 cups cheez it crackers
  • 1 cup oyster crackers
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1- 1 ounce package ranch seasoning mix
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese grated


  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine the chex cereal, pretzels, Cheez Itz, oyster crackers in a large bowl and set aside.
  • Heat a small saucepan over medium heat and add butter. Whisk constantly until the butter is boiling and small brown bits appear at the bottom of the pan (about 6 minutes). When this happens, remove from the heat immediately and pour into a separate bowl.
  • Whisk in the parmesan seasoning. The mixture will get thicker at this points. Pour over bowl of mix and stir until combined, at least 5 minutes. To ensure it's all completely coated.
  • Spread the mixture on a baking sheet and sprinkle with the parmesan cheese.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for one hour, tossing every 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let it cool. Store in an air tight container for up to 5 days.
