Parmesan-Ranch Munchie Mix

I made this easy snack mix last week for an evening class I'm currently taking for work. We've been working on some nutrition and meal plans and were to bring in a snack to share with our class. I quickly put this together, just to be informed the campus was without power and class was cancelled.

Of course I was a little disappointed, it's not every night we get to have a mini potluck! But I did surprise a couple co-workers with their own bag the next morning. It sure didn't last long in my house either.

Over the years I've made several varieties of mixes like this one, some with different seasonings or ingredients.  That's what is so fun about snacks mixes, you can always change it up.

In fact, I like it so much I think I'll be making another batch tomorrow for class again. Let's hope nothing gets cancelled this time,  I don't want to have to eat it all myself!

Parmesan-Ranch Munchie Mix

4 cups air-popped popcorn
3 cups mini pretzels
1 cup fish-shaped cheese crackers
1 cup lightly salted peanuts
1 oz. pkg ranch dressing mix
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2/3 cup canola oil

In a large bowl, combine popcorn,  pretzels,  crackers and peanuts.  In another small bowl, whisk together ranch seasoning, Parmesan cheese and oil.

Add oil mixture to the mix and toss all together. Microwave for two minutes, stirring halfway. Spread mixture out onto parchment paper to let set.

You may serve immediately. Store leftovers in an airtight container. Will keep for a few days.
