1/2 stick butter
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp Italian seasoning
8 cups multigrain oat cereal
2 cups tiny pretzels
2 cups goldfish crackers
12 dried apricots, chopped
Place the butter into the slow cooker; add lid and cook on high 5 minutes or until butter is melted. Add the cheese, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning; stir to mix together well. Stir in the remaining ingredients and cook, without lid, for about 45 minutes on high. Stir every 15 minutes to keep mixed.
Reduce the heat to low and cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the mix is crisp and fragrant. This will take about 2 to 3 hours.
Remove to a large bowl and allow to cool completely before serving.
Mix may be stored in an airtight container.
Yield: Serves approximately 20 people.
