Printable Gift Label and Slow Cooker Snack Mix

POSTED September 11th AT 11:41pm

I have tried a few recipes and this is still my favourite  slow cooker snack mix recipe . We wanted to give these as gifts this year so I also created a printable gift label to add to the finished bags (link to print off the label is at the bottom of the page, just below the recipe.)

       

This recipe is very versatile and can be switched up easily to suit your preferences. We chose to use Chex cereal, Bugles, Cheerios, pretzels, and peanuts. There are so many other snacks that could be added or swapped; almonds, cheese stix, goldfish crackers...  

         

I was surprised with how simple this was to make. And it makes your house smell snackishly delicious. Once we had everything set out it took my daughter and I a total of 10 minutes to have it all in the slow cooker cooking away.

I hope you enjoy the recipe and printable. Please like Myfunvelope on Facebook for more fun craft ideas! 

Ingredients
        6 cups of Chex cereal
        3 cups of Bugles
        1 cup of pretzels
        2 cups of Cheerios cereal
        1 cup of peanuts
        1/3 cups of melted butter
        2 tablespoons of Sea Salt
        1/4 cup of Worcestershire sauce
        2 teaspoons of garlic powder


Combine Chex, Bugles, pretzels, Cheerios, and peanuts in your slow cooker. Toss it carefully so as not to crush the cereal.

                 

In a separate bowl combine the melted butter, Worcestershire sauce, and spices. Pour slowly into your slow cooker tossing gently to coat the cereal mixture.

          

Once it's all combined set your slow cooker to low and cook for three hours stirring gently every 15 minutes to prevent burning. Once it is complete spread it out on parchment paper to dry. Fill plastic snack bags and attach the printable label. The label is fifteen cm across so choose snack bags of a similar size.
Now you have a tasty homemade snack to give as a gift or add to a gift basket!
