We are expecting lots of people at the house today for Kalissa’s Graduation Party. Yesterday I put together our new go to snack food, “Garbage Can Mix”. It looks something like this…
I made THREE batches of this and we served it as an appetizer during the reception between Kayla and Spencer’s wedding and the meal. We had just a little left over. I will suggest to the other kids to also make this for their weddings. People seemed to like it.
It’s easy to make….
You need 13 (yes 13) boxes, bags or packages of goodies. Fish crackers, Cheetos, pretzels, M&Ms, nuts, cereal…whatever you like. When I did this, I probably did more like 16 bags as some of mine were pretty small. Mix all of it together in a garbage bag. For safety, double bag this so the bag doesn’t break.
This version has pretzel M&Ms, chocolate bugles, cheesy popcorn, peanut butter Captain Crunch, Cheetos, chocolate Cheerios and other goodies. Mix whatever you like.
You will also need one container of Orville Redenboker popcorn oil, a T of onion powder and a T of garlic powder. Mix these three ingredients together.
Initially it will seem oily but it all dries. I serve this a clear solo cup.
The good news, it freezes too! I was on the Prom committee at school last year and this was something we served for that too. Kids like it..adults too.
