(around 25 ½ cup servings)
8 cups Crispex Cereal
8 oz. Pretzels (tiny pretzel shaped ones)
2 cups Mixed Nuts
½ cup Butter
1 cup Brown Sugar
2 tbsp. Light Karo Syrup
2 tsp. Vanilla
In a large bowl mix the crispex, pretzels and nuts and set aside. In a sauce pan over medium heat combine the butter, sugar and syrup. Heat to a boil and continue for one minute. Remover pan from the heat and add the vanilla to hot mixture. After combining well, pour over the crispex mix and toss gently. Spread the mixture out on a rimmed cookie sheet or two and let cool. When cool place mixture in large zip-lock bags until ready to eat.
Note: You can use other chex mix cereals or a combination of them for a little change in taste.
Note: I'm a cashew nut fan. If you have a favorite nut, use it instead of the mixed nuts to make it your own snack mix.
