Little Man Snack Mix

Santa brought the kids each a crock pot cook book.  I let them each pick out one thing to make every week.  It is such a fun time cooking with them in the kitchen and when they pick out the recipe themselves they are way more interested in eating it.  This was a big hit.  It is from the cookbook Fix it and Forget it Slow Cooking For Kids.
 3 cups thin pretzel sticks
4 cups wheat chex
4 cups cheerios
12 ounces salted peanuts
half a stick of butter (melted)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp celery salt
1/2 tsp season salt (Lawrys)
2 Tbsp parm. Cheese
2 cups m&ms or choc chips.

Mix pretzels, cereals and peanuts together in crock.  Add seasonings and parm cheese to melted butter, mix well.  Pour butter mixture over dry stuff in crock.  Stir around until coated.  Cook on low for 2.5 hours stirring every 30 minutes.  After 2.5 hours let mix cook for 30 minutes without the lid.  let cool.  Add m&ms or choc chips once cool.  Serve and enjoy.
