So my daughter Becca was going through some of my recipes and came across this ancient recipe that I had written down when I first got married, 30 years ago. I remember making it and that it was really good, but I’m not sure why I ever quit making it. I don’t even remember if I ever made it for my kids or not. Well, she decided to make it today and give it a try. It was delicious! I had forgotten how good it is. You need to try this! Apparently, the recipe is on Kellogg’s site, who knew? But I couldn’t find it on Pinterest. Is this a Pinterest first? Probably not, but here’s the recipe.
Can you tell how old this recipe is? I had it written down in a make-your-own cookbook I received when I was a teenager. The book started coming apart years ago, but I put the pages in a menu folder in a filing cabinet. I keep all kinds of recipes in there. Turns out they are our most used ones. The pages are stained, and some are torn, but they are the best. I still can’t believe she found this one.
It’s so easy to make. You probably have most of the ingredients already in your pantry. All you have to do is dump everything in a bag and shake. Even your littles can help with this recipe. They’d have a lot of fun shaking the bag! It’s perfect for taking to ballgames, practices, and snacking during movies!
The only thing we did differently was that we baked it for a few minutes just to try it and the result was amazing! You don’t have to bake it, but it just gives the flavors a little extra toastiness. Special thanks to my daughter Becca for the amazing pictures! She’s the bomb ya’ll! Enjoy!

Open bag and add spice mixture. Close bag tightly and gently toss unitl cereal and pretzels are well coated. Eat and enjoy!
See optional baking instructions if you like.
Optional: We spread the cereal mixture after it was all mixed up, on a baking sheet, and baked for 5-7 minutes in a 350-degree oven. Then allow to cool and store in a tightly sealed container or Ziplock bag.
This snack really brought back some memories. It was so good! It’s smoky with just a touch of warmth and sweetness. I can see sprinkling this seasoning itself on popcorn, or adding popcorn to the Crispix Ballgame Snack Mix. Even nuts would be really great added to this. Let me know if you try this and what you think!
