Ingredients
  • 3 cups crisp rice cereal, such as Rice Chex (about 3 ounces)
  • 3 cups dried snap peas (about 3 ounces)
  • 2 cups crunchy chow mein noodles (about 4 ounces)
  • 1 1/2 cups roasted and salted almonds (about 7 ounces)
  • 1 1/2 cups sesame sticks (about 4 ounces)
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chinese five-spice
  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups wasabi peas (about 6 ounces)
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Toss the rice cereal, snap peas, chow mein noodles, almonds and sesame sticks together in a large bowl. Whisk the butter, soy sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, garlic, five-spice, pepper flakes and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a separate bowl. Pour the sauce over the snack mix and toss to coat well. Spread out on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until the mix is toasted and almost completely dry, 16 to 18 minutes, tossing about halfway through.

  • Remove from the oven and stir in the wasabi peas. Let cool completely, and then store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
