If your CI DO is the same size as mine, you will get 1 1/2 batches out of that seasoning mix.

Mine are in the oven right now. I modified a bit:

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup oil
2-3 tbsp worcestershire

Seasoning mix was the same.

I did:
cheerios (half box)
spanish peanuts (2 cups)
regular peanuts (3 cups)
almonds (3 cups)
rice chex (half box)
crispix (whole box)
bugles (half bag)
pretzels (2 cups or so)

Its baking now and smells delicious. I suspect this batch won't make it out of the house.

My batch is still on the shelves of Walmart
From what I've seen (I don't buy much bagged snack food), their prices are a lot better that the regular grocery stores. Throwback or something they call it? And I know their cereal prices are. Next trip to Walmart people will think I'm a snacking fool Maybe I'll buy some variety packs for the snack's part so I don't have a bunch of half bags laying around.

You could do the whole bag, I just wanted to save some for the next batch. I make at LEAST two batches of this stuff every year. I KNOW I don't put crack in it, but the stuff is as addictive as any street drug I swear!

I could do the whole bag? So it has a pretty good shelf life? Longer than the original products?
And I know I could probably blow through 3 lbs of this stuff in a week, I just don't want to, lol.

It has a longer shelf life. I put it in tins and hide it at the back of the cupboard. Lost one til summer once! It was a great treat. Here's mine just coming out of the oven.

Super! I love a long shelf life.
Along with all the snack foods I better pick up some more tupperware ;^)

Looks like a good mixture there for sure.

I just pour into gallon zip baggies. It keeps perfectly.

Alix. I commend you for not changing the seasoning. It's just perfect the way it is.

Thanks Zhizara, I agree. I felt like I needed more stuff for the seasoning to stick to though. I didn't add great bunches, but it helped to make everything even. I've had clumps of very salty bits from time to time, and this year everything is pretty even so far. Batch #2 is on the stove waiting for me to go get more onion powder. *forehead slap*

Because I'm such an idiot, I didn't have the seasonings. I added corn chips and pop corn. I used Planters Party mix peanuts and cashews. My seasonings are chilpolte chili, cumin, parsley,onion powder, dried Meyer lemon peel (ground to a powder) and a few dashes of hot sauce. Everything is in the roaster...we'll see.
