Have you been watching the big basketball tournament?  We’re definitely a sports loving household, and “the big dance” is something we always watch every year.  The suspense of the lower seeds upsetting the big dog top-seeds is not only great TV, but one of my favorite parts of the tournament.  I filled out a bracket again this year, and despite a couple of bracket-busters, my teams are doing pretty well.  With days of basketball watching still ahead, great snacks are a MUST!  So, I pulled out my crock-pot and made a batch of my Parmesan Ranch Cheez-It Snack Mix.  It’s a total slam dunk snack perfect for eating by the handful!

How this snack mix recipe comes together

This snack mix recipe is super easy to make, and uses a slow cooker or crock pot, to help make it savory, crunchy and completely delicious!  I included both Original Cheez-It crackers along with their new Cheez-It Grooves Zesty Cheddar Ranch crackers, which are the perfect flavor for this mix.  Also included are pretzels, corn/rice cereal and cashews.  To season the mix, I poured a basic seasoning made from melted butter, ranch seasoning, and Worcestershire sauce, and then let the crock pot do the rest.
