I recently gave you a link for Taste of Home’s Corny Snack Mix. I gave it a try yesterday, and it was a huge hit with my family. This would be a great gluten-free snack to have around for the holidays. I of course substituted gluten-free cereal for the Corn Pops, but I also increased the amount of popcorn. I had plenty of popcorn to use, and I thought the sweetness could be stretched a bit. Here’s my version of the recipe.
Sweet & Salty Gluten-Free Snack Mix
- 5 quarts popped popcorn
- 15 oz. Enviro Kidz Gorilla Munch (1 1/2 boxes)
- 15 oz. Fritos corn chips
- 2 bags Nestle premier white morsels (12 oz. each)
Using several large bowls, combine the popcorn, cereal, and chips. In a saucepan, heat the white morsels until melted and smooth. I used medium-high heat, stirring almost constantly, and didn’t have any scorching. Spoon the melted morsels over the popcorn mixture and toss to coat. Transfer to baking pans/dishes and allow to cool. I put mine on top of my chest freezer in the garage. This allows the melted morsels to harden. You end up with a pan full of snack mix all stuck together. Break it into chunks and put into serving bowls.
