In your really big pan, dump in the entire bag of Bugles.
Then, while trying to open the Cheez-Its, ram the corner of the box under your fingernail about 1/2 inch deep...or just deep enough to cause bleeding and cursing. On second thought, don't do this. It hurts. It hurts bad.
I wonder if my bloody finger is going to prevent some of you from making this. It's probably not the best advertising technique.
Instead, carefully open the package of Cheeze-Its and dump the entire box into the pan.
Add a 6 oz. bag of colored Goldfish crackers.
Now you need 3 cups of your favorite small pretzel.
Then add 2 cups Crispix cereal.
Then pour in a 16 oz container of cashews.
Mix it all together.
Now slowly pour 3/4 cup of the popcorn oil into the mixture, stirring as you pour.
Then add both packets of ranch seasoning, stirring well as you sprinkle. Please don't let the ranch scare you. It's not so much ranchy as just really deliciously seasoned. There's something about the ranch seasoning and the popcorn oil together that make it unbelievably good.
Bake at 250 degrees for about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let it cool and enjoy!
It makes a ton, so be sure to have your Tupperware or freezer storage bags ready. Okay, it doesn't actually make 2,000 pounds, but it does make a lot. Not that there is any left over at my house because we ate it all in about 1 day, but the average family might not scarf it down quite so quickly.
If you make this recipe, I'd love to hear what you think!
