According to the box, the "recipe" consists of 9 cups of cereal, 1 c nuts, 1 c pretzels, 1 c other (bugels,) so a total of 12 cups. You can nuke for 5 - 6 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes.

Thanks CW. That sounds about right.
I was reading through some of their recipes on their website.
I need to make another trip to the store, too. I remembered I like those little melba toast things in my part mix.

Are those the dark ones? I love the dark chex.

In order not to have a bunch of cereal laying around, besides the Cheerios, I bought a Chex mix. One box, two or three different kinds in it.

Yup, those are the dark ones. I usually buy one box of those and one box of crispix, I like how the original chex mix wants you to buy a box of each cereal, that's pretty great marketing!

Okay, I made another batch of Nuts and Bolts--traditional seasoning except I used Fritos instead of bugles or melba toast bits, didn't have any Cheerios. I also didn't have seasoned salt, so I used Mrs. Dash, added smoked paprika. Oh, I also added 1/2 c pumpkin seeds. When it was done, I drizzled with some sesame oil and sprinkled with "4-cheese blend" dry cheese. A friend is giving me homemade curry powder next week--thinking rice chex, pretzels, peanuts, cashews, puffed rice, and the curry powder for seasonings would be the start of a nice mix...

I have never heard of Nuts & Bolts, but this sounds like it would make a tasty alternative to my typical granola for when I go hiking. Being new to DC myself it is great to see how friendly the community seems. I cannot wait to read more of the amazing recipes and topics you all discuss!

Were happy to have you stick around. Lots and lots of great recipes here for you to try. And all of the folks are very friendly and helpful. This is a perfect example of how all forums should be.

They're also called Muddy Buddies, and a friend of mine would always bring them to any of our group gatherings. I'm not much of a snacker, but I definitely could do some serious calorie damage whenever these were around. And now I have a taste for them...
