Ingredients

SYRUP MIXTURE
1 cup brown sugar, pack
1 stick butter
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
SNACK MIXTURE
4 cups rice chex®
5 cups corn chex®
4 cups round pretzels
1 cup whole almonds
1 cup cashews
ADDITIONAL SNACK ADD-INS
1 large bag peanut M&M
1 large regular M&M
1 cup chocolate chips
2 cups white round pretzels


Preheat oven to 250. Combine first snack mixture in large disposable roaster pan that you have thoroughly greased with Crisco. Mix well and have ready.



FOR SYRUP: Combine brown sugar, butter and corn syrup in heavy saucepan over medium heat. Bring to boil, stiffing constantly. As soon as it starts boiling, stop stirring and boil for 5 minutes without stirring. Remove from heat and immediately add vanilla and baking soda. It will turn from a brown to a foamy light brown.



Pour syrup over snack mix and mix thoroughly. Bake in 250 degree oven for 1 hour, removing and stirring thoroughly every 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Stir well. Cover and let cool thoroughly, preferably overnight. In the morning, break into small chunks. In the disposable pan this is easier because you twist and turn it....she says it's harder in regular pan.



Add additional add ins as desired. Store in large covered container, like a cake carrier
