Spicy Snack Mix with Bugles

This Buffalo Ranch Snack Mix is perfect for tailgating before the games tomorrow. It is super easy to make and tastes amazing. This snack mix is highly addictive. I’ve made this several times and I can’t control myself around it. I end up giving most of it away so I don’t eat it all myself. If you aren’t into football, this would be a good snack mix for summer road trips, the beach, or girls’ night.

  1. Is it possible to whisk the oil, sauce and seasoning too much? The oil separated and the consistency was gummy and made it difficult to pour evenly over the bugle mix. The result was some clumps of mix that were soggy – but through it all we are devouring it and it is still delicious!!

  2. Thanks for the reply. I did find it dries out just fine 🙂 I have made this several times and it is very addictive! I doubled the buffalo sauce for gifts for some people that love the spicier taste, Thanks ever so much for sharing this easy recipe!

  3. You can bake it on 309 for about 10 minutes if you want, but it does dry out after about 30 minutes

  4. I just made a batch of this mix and wow, it does make a lot! Had to use my big enamel bread dough pan. I have never made a snack mix that doesn't have to be baked. It seems quite wet, hoping it soaks in but it is very tasty 🙂

  5. Fantastic! I threw in two packages of crumbled Ramen noodles that I roasted at 350 F for about 10 minutes. This snack mix is addicting. Thanks for renewing my love affair with Bugles!

  6. I love that you give most of it away…that means I get to enjoy it (along with my co-workers, who scarf this mix down)! YUM!
