Curried Snack Mix

Our mom is always cutting recipes out of magazines and newspapers. She finds the most interesting ideas for cooking and baking. I just had to try this recipe. I love anything curry. It is soooo addicting. I can eat practically the whole batch in one sitting. Make a batch, wrap it in a cellophane bag with a pretty ribbon and it would make a great hostess gift when visiting a friend or relative. It would also be great to put out at a party or before a meal when entertaining. The great thing about this is that you can add anything you want to the seasoning mix and it will taste great. Use any snacks that you have around the house; cereals, pretzels, crackers, dried fruit, etc.


1/2 cup dried cherries
1 cup wheat squares cereal
1 cup rice squares cereal
1/2 cup chow mein noodles
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon melted margarine


In a bowl combine cherries, cereals, and noodles. Melt margarine in the microwave. Add curry powder, cinnamon, cumin, salt, and brown sugar to the melted margarine. pour over cereal mixture and stir gently to coat. Spread onto a non stick cookie sheet (use a silpat if you have one). Toast in a 300 degree oven for 15-20 minutes, or until fragrant and lightly browned. Let cool completely before putting into a airtight container to store.
