Got the munchies? Here's another recipe for snack mix. This one comes from my sister-in-law, Robin. This tastes sort of like caramel corn - so delicious that it's amazingly easy to eat way too much of this stuff!
CARAMEL CRUNCH SNACK MIX2 cups Corn Chex cereal
2 cups Rice Chex cereal2 cups Wheat Chex cereal
6 cups popped popcorn (1 bag microwave corn, popped)2 cups pretzel sticks
1 cup honey-roasted peanuts1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup1/4 butter (margarine works, but don't use tub spreads)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix cereals, popcorn, pretzels, and peanuts in a large bowl. In a saucepan, heat together brown sugar, corn syrup, and butter over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Heat to boiling. Removed from heat and stir in vanilla. Pour over ceral mixture, stirring until evenly coated. Spread in large roasting pan. Bake 20 minutes, stirring after 10 minutes. Spread on wax-paper lined baking sheets to cool. When cooled, store in airtight container.
