We loved this! I made my own Cajun spices to season this with, and it was great!

I didn't have creole seasoning on hand so I used cajun season, spicy but good! Maybe could have used an addition of a little salt though, since there wasn't any in my seasoning.

I used all Corn Chex (that was all I had on hand) Snyder's pretzel nuggets, and peanuts. I also made my own creole seasoning so I could control the salt that went into the mix as the peanuts and the pretzels are salty enough on their own. For the red pepper sauce, I used Frank's Red Hot. I thought this was pretty good (though the kids did tell me that it was a little too spicy--next time I'll go lighter on the red pepper sauce) as did the rest of my family. GREAT movie snack and fun to make with the kids as a spending-time-together activity. I'll make this again. If you plan on sharing this with your kids, you might want to cut back on the red pepper sauce or go less heavy on the creole seasoning. I speak from experiance.

Just made this and it taste great. I did add 2 cups of cheerio's to it also cause I love those in the mix. Will make again!

It's good and addictive. I only used 1 tsp tabasco and it's got plenty of kick.

Easy receipe and tastes great! We like sweet and spicy snacks so I used Toffee covered Peanuts in place of the mixed nuts. Added 1 tsp Worchestershire sauce. Baked in a 250 degree oven for 45 - 60 mins. stirring every 15 mins. Very tasty!

Had a good kick. The wife, who doesn't usually eat spicy food, liked it too.
