Crunchy, salty, and borderline addictive, homemade party snack mix is guaranteed to disappear quickly at any gathering. But after making a back-of-the-box party mix recipe, we felt there was room for improvement. For our improved Asian Firecracker Party Mix recipe, tasters preferred the nutty sweetness of melted butter to margarine and olive oil, both of which left a greasy finish. The flavor of Worcestershire sauce was too domineering in our recipe. Soy sauce was more successful. Garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and ground ginger held their flavor through baking (unlike more subtle spices like paprika and onion powder, whose flavor faded).
