Based on another review about the oiliness, I cut the oil back to 2/3 cup and used 2/3 of the package of ranch dressing. My family likes less salt and fat, so the modifications were perfect for us. Great snacking material,Bea. As you said, nice change from the other party mix and a lot easier.Thanks.

A little greasy

Very good. Shook ingredients in paper bag to absorb some of the oil.

If you do not like buttery popcorn, you will not like this recipe - skip it. However, if your family is like mine and likes their popcorn the butterier the better, then you will LOVE IT! I love the ranch flavor and the simplicity of the recipe. A+++

This was soooo good!! It is absolutely addicting. I was worried it was going to be greasy but it wasn't at all. I gave it to my parents for Christmas and they said it was the best mix I've made for them yet.

I agree--it's too oily, but I solved that problem. I laid out newspapers on the table and put paper towels on top and spread the mixture on that. It absorbed the extra oiliness. The stored it in zipper bags. It makes so much that I can use it more than once and have leftovers. It is Very addicting! I love it!

Be prepared! This makes A LOT of party mix! Two of the really large round Tupperware bowls. Which is a good thing really. Very tasty and quite addictive. I made it for my 4th of July party and a lot got eaten, but there was so much I brought the leftovers to work the next day and when it was gone people were still looking around for the bowl. The only change I would suggest is adding more nuts. They kind of got lost in all the crackers and cereal.
