Caramel Snack Mix

Better than most other snack mix recipes I’ve found, it makes a lot, store in a resealable plastic bag.

½ c. butter
¾ c. white corn syrup
1 c. packed brown sugar
1 c. chopped pecans
1 c. sliced almonds
1 (12 oz) package crispy corn and rice cereal

1. Preheat oven to 275°. Spray a large roasting pan with non-stick cooking spray.
2. In a medium-sized microwave safe bowl, mix butter, white corn syrup and brown sugar. Place the mixture in the microwave and cook 2 minutes, or until butter melts.
3. Place the cereal, pecans, and almonds into the prepared roasting pan. Pour the melted butter mixture over the cereal and nuts and mix gently until the cereal and nuts are coated.
4. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
5. As snack mix is cooling, be sure to continue to stir so that the mix will not harden in one big lump.

Yield: 15 to 20 servings
