Wow. What a memory. To this day, I can get lost in the smells that came from her kitchen during this annual extravagance.

When I was growing up, Mom would spend a couple evenings as we approached the holidays making literally gallons of snacks for the family - with all the aunts, uncles and cousins we had a large family and needed gallons! I can remember several 5 gallon cans full of what we called "Nuts & Bolts" that were eaten throughout the holiday during multiple gatherings of family and friends.

 A few weeks ago, my niece Jennifer came across Mom's receipt and shared it with the family.

Wow. What a memory. To this day, I can get lost in the smells that came from her kitchen during this annual extravagance.

So.... I thought I would share the receipt with hopes that you too can enjoy what I enjoyed for many years. (I'm making it myself this week-end.)

NUTS AND BOLTS

  • 1 box cheerio
  • 1 box kix
  • 1 box wheat chex
  • 1 box rice chex
  • 1 box corn chex
  • 1 bag thin pretzel sticks
  • 2 cups peanuts
  • 1 cup pecans

Mix in 2 large pans (aluminum pans used to bake turkey work well). Salt well.

Heat to boiling:

  • 1 cup Wesson oil
  • 1 stick butter or margarine
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce

Pour over cereal mixture. Stir well. Bake at 250 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. Stir occasionally while baking.

Make it once, you'll make it again. Guaranteed.

Have a terrific, safe and happy holiday! I'll see you next year.
