Furikake Party Mix (Japanese Trail Mix) | RECIPE


Furikake Party mix is basically seaweed flavored trail mix. It has a saltiness that will keep you reaching for more. This is a recipe from a family friend and in the original it made 4 sheet pans of mix, but for the purpose of not feeding an army, I've halved it to make 2 sheet pans worth. If you want even less, just half the measurements I've written down below. Enjoy!

D R Y   I N G R E D I E N T S
  • 6oz Chex Cereal (1/2 reg box)
  • 1 can (8oz) dry roasted peanuts
  • 4 bags of microwave lightly salted popcorn, popped (7oz) 
  • 1 jar Furikake nori blend (make sure you don't buy the one with dried shrimp)
  • Arare (however much you want, just be sure to add in AFTER the mix has baked, as it will BURN)

S Y R U P   I N G R E D I E N T S
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted 
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup Karo syrup
  • 1/2 cup sugar

M E T H O D 
  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees. (Gas Mark 1)
  2. Grease both your baking sheets, either with an oil spray or butter. 
  3. Pop your popcorn.
  4. In a large bowl, mix together your cereal, peanuts, and popcorn. 
  5. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan heat up your butter, oil, syrup, and sugar until lightly boiling. Slowly pour your wety mixture into your dry ingredients, stirring gently.  Lay out your mix onto each baking sheet, topping each pan with 1/2 of the Furikake jar. 
  6. Baking on the middle rack of your oven for 1hr 15mins, stirring around the mix every 15 minutes or so.
  7.  Remove from oven once the mix has dried out, making sure to cool completely before mixing in your arare. 
Store in air tight containers. Will usually last about a month.
