Party Time

'Tis the season for parties.  If you are hosting a party or want to bring some goodies to a party you are attending, think about this party mix.  Popcorn is always a favorite, and this is an easy recipe that can be made in advance.

Popcorn Party Mix
Yields about 4 quarts

3 quarts popped popcorn
2 cups mixed nuts
2 cups miniature pretzel twists
2 cups miniature cheese crackers
6 Tbsp butter
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.

In a very large bowl, mix popcorn, nuts, pretzels, and cheese crackers.

In a small saucepan, melt butter.  

Stir in salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and Worcestershire sauce.

Pour over popcorn mixture and mix well to coat.

Transfer mixture to ungreased baking sheets.  I used two.  Bake, uncovered for about 45 minutes, but stir about every 15 minutes.

Cool, then store in an airtight container.  It keeps for about three days.
