    Had to make more snacks for work. I make a kind of hot spicy chex mix thing but I use crisp-x instead of chex cuz I like em best they stay crispier longer.

    I did the nuts separately so I can have just nuts to munch then mixed it all together at the end.

    The recipe is here:

    Excellent Recipe, Debi!

    May I humbly add one ingredient?

    When softening butter add one tablespoon of sesame oil and mix well with butter.

    It will add a whole new dimension to your already excellent mix!

    Sessame oil? Never tried it before. What sort of things would I use it for besides the butter?

    Sesame oil is an excellent flavoring agent in marinades and holds up well for high heat cooking.

    Gremlin first turned me on to it when I long ago posted a series of marinades based on teryaki sauce. Try it, you'll like it!

    Wow Deb, that looks awesome!

    Hmmm, sesame oil... nice idea Monty! I never thought about using it in marinades... I use it in stir fries and it is a great flavor.

    I made two roasters full of Crisp-x Mix and brought into to work today - it was gone before lunch!

    Smoked - I find it everywhere here. Try WalMart. I think it stays crispier than Chex.

    I have this weird idea that I might try frying the nuts in my leftover bacon grease or adding a spoonful of grease to the butter to add a bacon flavor to it. Might be good for a change of taste.

    My Aunt Margie says we have been making this since 1957. This could explain part of our family history of heart problems.

    Doesn't the bacon grease cause it to need frigeration? Sounds awsome though!
