Edamame Party Mix

"Growing up, I spent many Saturdays in New York City's Chinatown feasting on Peking duck with my family. When I crave those flavors at home, I whip up this party mix. It's fast and über-snackable!" says Jessica

Ingredients

8 cups rice cereal squares (such as Chex)

1 3.5-ounce package rice crackers, broken into bite-size pieces (about 3 cups)

2 cups crispy chow mein noodles

2 cups roasted edamame

1 cup unsalted roasted peanuts

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

1/8 teaspoon chili oil

1 1/2 teaspoons Chinese five-spice powder

1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder

2 cups sesame sticks (or broken sesame breadsticks)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. Mix the cereal, crackers, noodles, edamame and peanuts in a large bowl. (If you're using breadsticks instead of sesame sticks, add them at this point.)
  2. Microwave the butter in a medium microwave-safe bowl until melted. Stir in the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, sesame oil, chili oil, five-spice powder and garlic powder.
  3. Spread the cereal mixture on 2 baking sheets. Drizzle with the butter mixture and mix well with your hands.
  4. Bake 1 hour, tossing every 15 minutes and rotating the pans halfway through; stir in the sesame sticks in the last 15 minutes of baking. The party mix is ready once everything is crispy and all the butter has been absorbed.
