Spicy wasabi-flavored peas are a great snack on their own but can sometimes be too hot. In this snack mix, the wasabi spice is tamed just a bit with the addition of a crispy cereal, pretzel sticks, almonds, a ginger-soy sauce, and sweet chewy dried fruit. Try it at your next party or tailgate!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Combine cereal, pretzel sticks, peas, and almonds in a large mixing bowl. Set aside.

  • Heat and stir butter, vinegar, sesame seeds, soy sauce, ginger, and cayenne pepper in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until the butter melts. Drizzle the butter mixture over the cereal mixture; stir gently to coat. Transfer mixture to a 15x10-inch baking pan.

  • Bake about 30 minutes or until the mixture is almost dry and the almonds are lightly toasted, stirring twice. Stir in apricots. Spread the mixture on a large piece of foil to cool. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
