Party Mix Recipe and Crochet Football Jar Cozy
The party mix recipe is a staple during American football season. And we’re jazzing it up with a fun jar cozy! We’ve tweaked the recipe to add some of our favorite ingredients. Here’s our take on the original.
While this delicious party mix is cooling…whip up a cozy or two. They are super fast and fun!
Party Mix Recipe
- 6 cups Rice Chex
- 3 cups Bugels
- 1 cup cashew halves
- 1 cup Goldfish pretzels
- 1 cup Three Cheese Snyder Nibblers
- 6 Tablespoons butter
- ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
- 1 Tablespoon seasoned salt
- 1 ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon cajun seasoning
In large bowl, mix together the Rice Chex, Bugels, cashews, pretzels and Nibblers. Set aside.
Melt butter. Add Worcestershire sauce, seasoned salt, garlic powder, onion powder and cajun seasoning. Pour over cereal mixture. Stir until evenly coated. Spread in 9×13 pan
Heat oven to 250°. Bake Party Mix for 45-60 minutes stirring every 15 minutes. Cool on paper towel. Store in an air tight container like pint sized canning jars!
Crochet Football Jar Cozy for Party Mix
This crochet footall cozy fits a pint size canning jar…making it a great gift idea or fun home décor item for your next football party! Fill the jar with your favorite party mix and get into the game.
Crochet a brown cozy to represent an NFL football. Add white stripes to represent college and high school football. Crochet in pink for a feminine touch or to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness month in October.
This is a great stash buster…pictured is Vanna’s Choice (a soft and vibrant yarn). I’m particularly fond of the Raspberry football cozy! =)
