Unfortunately my slow cooker has a few hot spots so some pieces on the bottom got burnt and I had to cut the cooking time. If you have a new slow cooker you shouldn't have this issue, but be sure to watch for any burning.
Anyway, this would be perfect for a New Year's Eve snack or for an upcoming Super Bowl party!
Slow Cooker Savory Ranch Chex Mix
Adapted from Oh Sweet Basil
1/3 cup butter
1 packet ranch dip mix
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. light corn syrup
5 cups corn or rice Chex
3 cups mini pretzel twists
3 cups oyster crackers
3 cups Cheezit crackers
1. In a glass measuring cup, melt the butter in 15 second intervals in the microwave. Stir in the ranch, Worcestershire, sugar, and corn syrup.
2. Spray a slow cooker pot with nonstick spray or line with a slow cooker bag. Add the cereal, crackers and pretzels.. Add the sauce and stir well to coat every piece. Cover and cook on low for 3 hours, stirring at hour 1, hour 2 and one final time at 2½ hours. (Mine started to burn after 2 hours so be sure to check and stop cooking if yours does, too!)
3. Pour everything onto wax paper to cool completely. Place into a large bowl for serving.
