Slow Cooker Party Mix
In this adaptation of a classic coffee-table snack, the usual mix of almonds, cheese crackers, cereal squares, and oyster crackers turns extra-crisp and savory as it slowly cooks in a smoky soy-sauce-and-paprika seasoning blend. It takes a bit of minding, but once it’s done, you’re good for hours of party snacking.
- 2 cups oyster crackers
- 3 cups rice cereal squares
- 3 cups cheese cracker squares
- 2 cups salted almonds
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
- 2 teaspoons hot smoked paprika
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1Place the oyster crackers, cereal squares, cheese crackers, and almonds in a large slow cooker and turn the cooker to low heat.
2In a large bowl mix together the soy sauce, liquid smoke, paprika, and butter and pour it over the crackers in the slow cooker. Mix well.
3Cook for about 3 to 4 hours uncovered, stirring every 30 minutes or so, until the mix has dried but has not burned.
