It's always good to have a little pick-up nibble on hand during the holidays and this spicy, crunchy snack mix fills the bill. A bowl of Red Hot Nuts and Bolts will please your holiday drop-in guests, or pack it into Chinese takeout containers as a welcome hostess or teacher gift.
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Combine cereal, pretzels and cheese crackers in a large roasting pan. Combine melted butter, oil and remaining ingredients in a medium bowl and stir well. Pour seasonings over cereal and stir well with large spoon. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool and store in an airtight container.
