This party mix is a textural and flavorful delight, featuring sweet, salty, and spicy flavors. Be sure to pour the wet ingredients over the cereal mixture gradually so that you get an evenly coated mixture. Stir the mixture every hour to get even browning.

How to Make It

1. Combine wheat cereal, rice cereal, pretzels, and oat cereal in a 5- to 6-quart oval slow cooker coated liberally with cooking spray. Whisk together butter, jelly, apple pie spice, and pepper; gradually pour over cereal mixture, tossing to coat evenly. Place a clean, lint-free kitchen towel over mixture in cooker. Cover and cook on low until lightly browned and toasted, about 3 hours, stirring every hour.

2. Spread mixture on baking sheets to cool completely. (Mixture will become crisper after cooling.)
