Easy and delicious snack mix with a dilly ranch seasoning. I tone down the cayenne pepper and send this to school with the kids too! You can also substitute pretzels or goldfish for other ingredients you like, such as cereal, crackers, or nuts.

I did not have butter flavored popcorn oil so I used vegetable oil instead. I made my own homemade dry ranch seasoning mix, cut the dill weed back to a teaspoon (only because my dry ranch seasoning mix has dill already in it) and I used two bags pretzel chips. Mine took almost 45 minutes to bake for each pan, not 20. Next time, I think I'd increase the oil. Great tasting snack mix. Cheap to make and both the pretzel chips and the Goldfish crackers I bought for next to nothing at Grocery Outlet and all the other ingredients I had on hand or I made myself, which helps when you've got a whole family that loves to snack! This will make a good lunch filler-outer and Movie Munch. I'll be sure to write butter-flavored popcorn oil on the grocery list and make it with it the next time.


Awesome recipe - I've been making them for a couple of years. The only differences are I don't add cayenne (but I might try) and I don't add cheddar fish! If you can't find butter flavored oil reg oil will do ok, but it's the butter flavor that is awesome! Thanks for posting this recipe!


Very addicting snack!
