Place first 8 ingredients in microwave safe 4 cup measure – heat on medium for approximately 2 min. stir to dissolve seasonings heat again about 1 1/2 min.  Place the cereal, nut, and cracker mixture in a large shallow roaster. (I use a large aluminum foil turkey roaster with the handles on the side that extend under the roaster for strength)  Pour margarine seasoning mixture over the above, mix well.  Place in 275 oven bake, for one hour – stirring every 15 minutes.  Remove from oven – pour on a large cloth (I use an old sheet) spread out to cool.
