Crunchy Recipe Party Mix

This is an interesting crockpot appetizer recipe because it is cooked without putting the lid on the crockpot. Often, the whole point of cooking something in a crockpot is to keep the moisture in and you will want to do that if you are cooking meat, fish or poultry and you want to keep it from drying out or if you are cooking a moist dish like soup or a casserole. However, with this recipe the point is to bring the mixture in the crockpot to a high temperature without letting it become soggy. Putting the lid on will make this crockpot party mix soggy so remember to leave it off for the best results.

The nuts, pretzels, and cereals are combined in this recipe with Worcestershire sauce, butter, hot pepper sauce and three kinds of seasoned salt. The resulting party mix is great when you put it in little containers and leave them around the room so when people are enjoying their drinks and they fancy something to nibble on, this tasty treat is close to hand. It might be a good idea to use big containers instead of little ones since this party mix disappears at an alarming rate!

You can buy party mix in big bags or you can make your own. Store-bought party mix tends to be a bit boring though and quite often it contains a lot of unnecessary additives like sugar and colorants, so making your own is a much better idea. Also, you can choose which ingredients to use and your guests will certainly be impressed with your slow cooker party mix!
