Why I Love This Recipe

I like this snack mix because it reminds me of the pink popcorn bricks I used to love as a kid. It's kind of like a hybrid peanut brittle caramel corn

2 cubes butter
1/4 c Karo light syrup
1 c packed brown sugar
1/4 t baking soda
1/2 t vanilla
6 c plain popped corn
2 c cheerios
3 c rice chex
1 c peanuts


bring to a boil butter, karo, and brown sugar in a large pan

Lower heat and boil for exactly 5 more minutes

Remove from heat and add baking soda and vanilla.

add popcorn, rice chex, and peanuts, mixing quickly to coat evenly

pour into jelly roll pan

bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour, stirring occasionally

cool and break apart

store in airtight container
