Kimberly Einmo’s Nuts & Bolts Recipe

0

This holiday season try a bowl of Kimberly Einmo’s secret family recipe for Nuts & Bolts, a savory, little-bit-spicy treat!

“My mom and I have been making Nuts & Bolts every Christmas since I was a little girl. I’m not sure where she found the original recipe, but over the years, we’ve added a little bit here or deleted an ingredient there until we came up with the version of the recipe we use today. It’s a savory, little-bit-spicy version of the traditional party mix. But our version is oh-so-much tastier!”

Spread out on a large baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 6 minutes. Remove from the oven, stir thoroughly. Bake another 6 minutes. Pour out on flat brown paper grocery bags to soak up excess oil. Let cool thoroughly.

Store in gallon size storage bags. Enjoy!

 

Kimberly’s Top Tip:

I like to make multiple batches at the same time. I measure the dry ingredients listed in gallon size zip closure bags. Then I’ll pour one bag at a time into a large mixing bowl, add the mixture of wet ingredients, toss to coat, and bake. When thoroughly cooled, back each batch goes into its own bag.

I’ve had the same recipe for as many years. I have modernized my version and scrapped the nuts. It’s much better without them.
