Make-It-Mine Slow Cooker Party Mix
- Lightly coat an oval 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.* In the prepared cooker combine Cereal, Crunchy Treat, oat cereal, and Nuts & Seeds.
- In a small bowl stir together melted butter, Seasonings, Worcestershire sauce, and, if desired, bottled hot pepper sauce. Drizzle butter mixture over cereal mixture, stirring gently to coat.
- Cook, uncovered, on high-heat setting for 1-1/2 hours, stirring from the bottom up every 30 minutes. Turn to low-heat setting. Cook, uncovered, about 20 minutes more or until dry and crisp, stirring from the bottom up every 10 minutes.
