Caramel Snack Mix
Don’t be surprised if this nutty, caramel-y, chocolaty snack mix disappears quickly! Good thing it only takes six ingredients to whip up.
1 12 – ounce box crispy corn and rice cereal (about 12 cups)
1 1/2 cups mixed nuts, cashews, or almonds
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup light-color corn syrup
1/2 cup butter
2 cups chocolate-covered raisins, chocolate-covered peanuts, or semisweet or milk chocolate pieces
1 Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. In a foil roasting pan, combine cereal and nuts; set aside.
2 In a small saucepan, combine brown sugar, corn syrup, and butter. Cook and stir over medium heat until butter is melted and mixture is smooth. Pour over cereal mixture; stir gently to coat.
3 Bake for 30 minutes, stirring twice. Remove from oven. Spread mixture on a large piece of buttered foil; cool. Wash and dry the foil roasting pan.
4 Break cereal mixture into pieces; return to clean roasting pan. Stir in chocolate-covered raisins; cover.
• Chocolate Spiced Snack Mix: Prepare as above except add 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger to the butter mixture.
