9 Sep

Prep: 15 min., Cool: 30 min. Use a glass bowl when you zap this in the microwave. 
Yield: Makes 13 cups


  • 2  (1-oz.) envelopes Ranch dressing mix
  • 1/2  cup  vegetable oil
  • 3  cups  crisp oatmeal cereal squares
  • 3  cups  corn-and-rice cereal
  • 3  cups  crisp wheat cereal squares
  • 2  cups  pretzel sticks
  • 1  cup  dried cherries
  • 1  cup  candy-coated chocolate pieces


1. Whisk together Ranch dressing mix and 1/2 cup vegetable oil in a large microwave-safe glass bowl. Stir in oatmeal cereal squares and next 3 ingredients.
2. Microwave mixture at HIGH 2 minutes, and stir well. Microwave at HIGH 2 more minutes, and stir well. Spread mixture in a single layer on wax paper, and let cool 30 minutes. Add cherries and candy pieces. Store in an airtight container up to 5 days.
Note:  I used Quaker Essentials Oatmeal Squares for crisp oatmeal cereal squares, Crispix for corn-and-rice cereal, and Wheat Chex for wheat cereal squares.
