Sweet Cereal Mix

I made this delish snack mix when all my sibs and our families got together for a camping weekend. It was great to take with us to the beach, snack on around the campfire or munch on while we were just hanging out. I think that the adults might have snuck it out a few times when the kids weren't looking! :) I doubled my recipe for this weekend and it was completely gone by the time we got home!

Seriously, how can you not love the looks of this!!

Sweet Cereal Mix

3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup dark corn syrup
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
1/2 box rice or corn chex
1/3 box of wheat chex
2 cups mini pretzels
1/2 box cheerios
1/2 bag honey teddy grahams

(Note: Our store was out of a lot of stuff when I shopped for this recipe, so I ended up using apple cinnamon cheerios, cinnamon chex and a different flavor of teddy grahams... It still turned out scruptious, so feel free to try different flavors in your combo!)

Preheat your oven to 250. Grease 2 deep 9x13 foil pans. Mix all the cereal, pretzels and teddy grahams together and divide between the two foil tins, set aside. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and then add in the corn syrup and brown sugar. Pour the mixture over the two tins of cereal and mix to coat well. Bake for 1 hour, making sure to stir the cereal every 15 minutes or so. Spread cereal onto GREASED wax paper to separate and cool. Eat and enjoy!!
