Boat Sauce Party Mix

Boat Sauce Party Mix


  • 9 cups total (3 each) Rice, Corn and Wheat Chex™ (or equivalent)  
  • 1 ½ cups mixed nuts, or nuts of your choosing (I like peanuts and almonds) 
  • 1 ½ cups pretzels 
  • 1 package Spielman Bagels™ Herb & Salt Bagel chips (or 1.5oz equivalent) 
  • 1 cup cheese crackers   
  • 1 ½ cups Bugles™ 
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced to a paste
  • ¼ cup onion, grated (use a box grater on about ⅓ of a large onion) 
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh rosemary, minced 
  • 4 Tablespoons Bobbie’s Boat Sauce Classic or Hot  


  1. Preheat oven to 250 and line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper or silicone. 
  2. Combine cereals, nuts and snacky items in a large bowl.
  3. Slowly heat up butter in a small saucepan while you prepare garlic and onion.  I like to mash the garlic with the salt in a mortar and pestle to get a puree.  Add garlic, onion, salt and Boat Sauce (and rosemary) to butter and when butter is melted, turn off heat.  For even toastier flavor, allow the butter to become a nutty brown before adding the rest of the ingredients. 
  4. Pour butter over the big bowl, and toss thoroughly.  Really the most effective way is using your hands; they will be delicious. 
  5. Spread contents evenly over 2 sheet pans, and bake for one hour, stirring and rotating pans every 20 minutes.
