Hot Curried Party Mix

I wonder how many “party mixes” have been concocted since someone first thought of them.  Almost anything snacky can combined and held together with some kind of a binder.  The greatest thing about these is how easy they are to prepare.  Be sure to make this a minimum of one day ahead – a week is better.  Stored in an airtight container, this will last a month, if you can keep out of it.

5 cups Chex cereal (rice or corn work the best)
2 1/2 cups mini pretzels
2 cups roasted peanuts (8 ounces)
1 1/4 cups chow mein noodles
4 tablespoons butter melted
1 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons honey

Preheat the oven to 275 degrees.  Line a baking pan with foil and spray with a non stick spray.

Combine the cereal, pretzels, peanuts and noodles in a large bowl.

Whisk the butter, soy sauce, curry powder, cayenne, mustard, salt and honey together.  Pour over the dry ingredients and mix together very well.  I use a gloved hand to do this as it is pretty sticky.  Bake for 35 to 45 minutes until golden brown, stirring half way through.

Yield:  Approximately 1 1/4 pounds
