My favorite cereal has to be a big box of Golden Grahams... It is so yummy to me and in fact with my first baby, I craved cereal (especially Golden Grahams) the entire time!! It wasn't unheard of for my hubs to walk in the door looking for supper and I was sitting there with a big bowl of cereal telling him "this is what you get..." Delicious! Anyhow, this is a fabulous snack that you will not be able to keep your hands off of. It is super addicting and you will definitely want to double this recipe from the start!
Caramel Smore Munch Mix
(recipe found at jamiecooksitup.net via pinterest)
1 (12 ounce) box Golden Grahams Cereal
1 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 1/4 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
Pour the whole box of Golden Grahams into a large mixing bowl. Add 1 cup sliced almonds and toss together to combine. Place parchment paper over the top of two large cookie sheets. Place into a medium-sized sauce pan 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup corn syrup and 1/3 cup brown sugar. Bring mixture to a boil over medium high heat, stirring occasionally. Once you have a nice boil going let it simmer away for 5 minutes. You'll want to be sure not to let it boil too rapidly. Stir occasionally. Remove it from the heat and add 1/2 teaspoon baking soda. Stir to combine. It will bubble up a bit and get kind of creamy looking. Pour it over the top of the cereal and almonds. Stir it in the caramel so that it is well mixed. Add 2 cups miniature marshmallows and 1 1/4 cups semi sweet chocolate chips. Stir it all together to combine. Pour it the mixture out onto the lined cookie sheets. Allow a few minutes time for the caramel to cool. Store leftovers in an airtight container.
