Slow Cooker Party Mix

Not only is this snack a welcome crowd pleaser at just about any party, itʼs fun to munch on at home, too. One variation for party mix is to sprinkle it with freshly grated Parmesan cheese immediately after you spread it out on the baking sheets. If you prefer a more robust flavor, use hot sauce instead of Worcestershire sauce and use chili powder in place of the garlic and onion powders.
