Ingredients

3/4 cup melted butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons soy or teriyaki sauce
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 teaspoon onion powder
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 teaspoon prepared brown mustard
1 tablespoon dark sesame oil (optional)
4 cups rice cereal squares
4 cups wheat cereal squares
1 (3-ounce) can chow mein noodles
2 cups salted cashew halves
3 (2.29-ounce) cans wasabi peas

Preparation

Combine first 9 ingredients, and, if desired, sesame oil in a medium bowl until well blended.

Combine rice cereal squares and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Slowly stir in butter mixture, tossing to coat. Spread mixture in an even layer in 2 (15- x 10-inch) jelly-roll pans.

Bake at 250° for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool in pans 10 minutes; spread mixture on paper towels to cool completely.

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Rice Chex and Wheat Chex Cereals. Wasabi peas can be found in the ethnic foods aisle of large supermarkets.
