Make Bits and Bites mix at home with this simple recipe. Shreddies, Cheerios, Cheese Bits, Ritz, Pretzels, Chex and mixed with butter, worchestershire sauce, tabasco and spices
Prep Time: 10minutes
Cook Time: 1hour
Total Time: 1hour10minutes
1(225g) box Cheese Bits (Cheese Nips or Goldfish crackers)
1(225g) box Mini Ritz Crackers
2(1 pound) cups butter, melted
Preheat oven to 250F.
Mix Cheese Bits, Mini Ritz, Cheerios, Shreddies and pretzels together in a large roasting pan (the kind used for turkey or large roast beef).
Whisk the remaining ingredients together in a separate bowl until well mixed. Pour the butter mixture over the bits and bites. Using a wooden spoon, mix well to make sure all the bits and bites are coated in the butter mixture. Sometimes there are some that stick in the corners or bottom and do not get coated. Be sure to stir into the bottom of the pan and draw them up.
Bake in the oven for about 2 hours. Stir the bits and bites every 15 minutes, pulling the ones at the bottom up to the top. After the 2 hours, the moisture should all be gone. If not and some of the pieces are still moist, bake another 15-30 minutes.
Once cool, bag and seal the bits and bites so they stay fresh and crispy.
