Nuts and Bolts Bobbie Hill Style

Nuts and Bolts Bobbie Hill Style is a holiday favorite. This recipe is as old as the hills. My other mother’s friend, Bobbie, had this recipe. She passed it down, and we make it every year without fail. Now, I like mine with more spice than most people. I love it when the spices get all caught up in the Chex cereal. The smell this emits, by the way, is delightful. Smells like home.

Nuts and Bolts Bobby Hill Style

In a LARGE roasting pan (this makes a lot), combine:

1 box rice Chex, wheat, and corn Chex

Cheerios, 1 box


2 lbs. nuts (I use mixed nuts and pecans)

In another large bowl, combine:

2 c. Wesson oil (this is the only BRAND that works with this recipe)

2 Tbsp. Seasoning salt

1 Tbsp. garlic salt (SALT, not powder)

2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

Pour over cereal/nut mixture and mix well—Bake at 250 for 2 hrs. Stir every 15 minutes because it will burn. Enjoy this recipe as much as our family has over the years. I remember going to her house and playing Tarzan and Jane with her grandkids. Such fond memories. Eating this transports me back in time to her backyard, the leaves, her wiener dog, and her weird phone/light thing.
