Microwave Snack Mix

  • 2 (1-oz.) envelopes Ranch dressing mix
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

  • 3 cups corn-and-rice cereal
  • 3 cups crisp wheat cereal squares
  • 2 cups pretzel sticks
  • 1 cup dried cherries
  • 1 cup candy-coated chocolate pieces

Whisk together the Ranch dressing mix and 1/2 cup vegetable oil in a large microwave-safe glass bowl (do not use plastic). Stir in the oatmeal cereal squares and the next three ingredients.

Microwave the mixture at HIGH for 2 minutes, and stir well. Microwave at HIGH for 2 more minutes, and stir well. Spread the mixture in a single layer on the wax paper, and let cool for 30 minutes. Add the cherries and candy pieces. Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
