Sweet Chex Mix

Comment on this recipe

"This is one of my favorite snacks for parties, especially at Christmas. This is a large recipe. It could be cut in half. Once you start snacking, it's hard to stop.

Ingredients

1 cup brown sugar
1 cup dark corn syrup
1/2 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 cups Cheerios
4 cups Rice Chex
4 cups Wheat Chex
1 cup mixed nuts

Instructions

Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Butter two cookie sheets or jelly-roll pans. (They must have sides.) In a saucepan, combine brown sugar, corn syrup, butter and salt. Stirring constantly, cook for 5 minutes on medium heat. Remove from heat and pour mixture over cereal and nuts. ("I put this in a roasting pan.") Mix well. Then put coated cereal on the cookie sheets and bake at 325 degrees F. for 15 minutes. Let cool. Store in covered container.

Y.P. of Port Byron, Ill.
