  • 2 cups bite-size cheese crackers
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 (1 ounce) package ranch dressing and seasoning mix

  1. In a large microwaveable bowl, mix cereal, pretzels and crackers. In a small microwaveable bowl, melt butter on high for about 30 seconds (uncovered) or until melted.
  2. Pour butter over cereal mixture and stir gently until evenly coated. Stir in dressing mix and Parmesan cheese until evenly coated.
  3. Microwave uncovered on high for 3 minutes, stirring after each minute. Spread on wax paper or foil and allow to cool. Store in an airtight container.
