Family Favorite Munchie Recipe---great for Hostess Gifts!

About ten years ago when we lived in Ohio, one of my neighbors gave me a recipe for a delicious munchie mix for parties. It has become a family favorite with my Mother making it every year for our Christmas celebration. Packaged in a beautiful jar or holiday container, this makes a delicious hostess gift!

 2 6 oz. boxes corn bugle snacks, original flavor
1 9.5 oz. box mini cheese-it crackers
1 10oz. pkg. oyster crackers
1 60z. pkg. original flavor tiny goldfish crackers
4 cups pretzel sticks
2 tsp. dried dill weed
1 tsp. lemon pepper
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1 pkg. original Ranch salad dressing mix
3/4 cup buttery flavor popcorn oil

In a large roaster or bowl combine bugle snacks, all crackers all crackers and pretzels. In a small bowl combine dill, lemon pepper, garlic powder and salad dressing mix. Sprinkle evenly over dry snacks. Slowly add oil, stopping occasionally to gently toss with rubber spatula or wooden spoon. Store at room temperature in a covered container for up to one week. Amount: 24 cups
