Bits and Bites "The Best EVER"

We tend to snack a lot more at Christmas time.  The days are shorter, the wind a lot colder.  We are always looking for comfort food.

I made this one year for a bake sale we were having at work.  This recipe makes A LOT!  I transferred them to zip lock bags and brought them to work.  

They weren't selling as, well, come on, it's "Bits and Bites". 

That was until one lady asked if she could try a small sample.

She bought every bag right there on the spot.


1 box (12 cups) Cheerios
1 box (13 cups) Shreddies
1 bag (4-5 cups) Pretzels
3 cups peanuts and/or mixed nuts
1 box Cheese Stixs
2 cups butter
4 Tbsp seasoned salt
2 Tbsp onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder


Put first 5 ingredients into large roaster.

Melt butter. Add seasoned salt, onion powder and garlic powder. Drizzle over contents in roaster. 

Stir carefully to mix well. 

Roast uncovered in 250 oven for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, stirring every 20 minutes. 

Cool, store in airtight container or freezer bags.

Comments and suggestions are ALWAYS welcome.
