Do you like sweet and salty snacks? Then this recipe is for you!! I originally found a recipe for Carmel Chex mix on the Chex website a couple of years ago. I've been adjusting it and playing with it ever since. Here's how I made today's batch:
Sauce: In saucepan, heat 2 sticks butter, 1 1/3 cups packed brown sugar, 8 Tbsp. light corn syrup, and 1 tsp. vanilla over medium heat, stirring frequently. Heat just to boiling.
Use a large ungreased roasting pan. I put in approximately 10 cups Chex (I used the corn Chex this time, but any kind will work), 1 bag microwave popcorn (light butter), 1 cup peanuts (I mixed plain and honey-roasted. You could use salted if you like more salt), and about 1-2 cups of pretzels.
Pour sauce over popcorn mix, stirring until evenly coated. Bake at 250 degrees for 45 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes to coat.
Cool on waxed paper. Enjoy!!
