In a large slow cooker (6-quart or bigger. An oval-shaped one gives more cooking space), place the cereals, pretzels, bagel chips, Bugles, and peanuts. Use two wooden spoons to gently mix together.
Place the melted butter in a small bowl and add the Worcestershire sauce and spices and stir together until mixed well.
Pour some of the butter mixture over the cereal mixture and mix with the two spoons. Keep pouring the butter mixture over in small amounts and mixing until all the butter mixture is fully distributed.
With the slow cooker on low, cook for three hours. For the first two hours, stir every 25 to 30 minutes. In the last hour, stir every 15 to 20 minutes to keep mixture from burning.
Spread the cereal mixture in a single layer onto an ungreased baking sheet or parchment paper to cool for 20 minutes before serving.
We’d recommend you use a 6-quart (or bigger!) oval-shaped slow cooker for this recipe. It will give you more cooking space.
Be sure to gently stir so that you don’t break the cereal!
Place some paper towels under the lid while cooking to absorb any extra moisture. Wipe the moisture off the lid each time you stir. If you find there is too much condensation taking place, tilt the lid at an angle on the slow cooker, so it is partially covering the top.
Try to lay it out in a single layer as best you can so it can cool and harden once baked and not stick together. If you need to speed up the process, you can put your baking sheets in the refrigerator.
