Caramel Nut Crunch

My friend, Teri, is one of the best cooks I know and, lucky for me (and you!) she’s always willing to share her fabulous recipes.

This sweet & nutty Chex mix is a delightful change from the usual party mix that abounds during the holidays and not only makes great party food, but wonderful gifts as well.

Caramel Nut Crunch

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup dark corn syrup (light will work if you don’t have dark)
1/4 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 cup Chex cereals (I used 2 cups of each kind)
1 cup pecan halves,walnut halves or peanuts (I used mixed nuts)
1 cup slivered almonds

Preheat oven to 325. Butter a jelly roll pan, 15 1/2 x 10 1/2 x 1 inch. Put cereal and nuts into a large bowl and set aside. Heat brown sugar, corn syrup, butter and salt in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, pour over cereal and nuts and stir, stir, stir until well coated. Spread in prepared pan & bake 15 min. Cool until slightly firm, 5-7 min; loosen w/metal spatula. Let stand until firm, about 1 hr.and break apart. Store in covered container. Makes about 8 c snack.
