Easy Spicy Chex Mix

One of my favorite things to make during the holidays is this Easy Spicy Chex Mix. I have been making it for so many years that I'm pretty sure our neighbors expect it now.  This easy snack is perfect anytime. I like making huge batches at the same time... some for giving, some for eating.

Here is what you'll need :

2 pound bag of pre made Chex  (you can make your own Chex, but using the premade obviously cuts down a lot of time)
4 cups cheese-its 
4 cups oyster crackers
2 cups cashews
1 1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup powdered ranch mix
1/8 cup red pepper flakes

In a large bowl (or giant foil pan because I don't have a large enough bowl), combine Chex, Cheese-Its, Oyster Crackers, and nuts. 
Drizzle vegetable oil and stir until everything is lightly coated.
Sprinkle Ranch Mix on top and mix to coat.
Add red pepper flakes and mix well.  

I enlisted this little elf to help stir

All wrapped in clear cello bags tied up with string!  Handmade ornaments complete the boys' teacher gifts this year. 

Happy Snacking!!
