My friend, Kathy, brings this delicious snack mix to every class party BY REQUEST! It's completely delicious and, unfortunately, COMPLETELY ADDICTING! I customized it for Ella's Pink Party by using pink and white M&M's, which I found at Party City. Vary your M&M colors to make this a delicious and festive treat!
Caramelized Crispy Snack Mix
9 cups Rice Chex cereal
9 cups Corn Chex cereal
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup butter
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups candy coated chocolate candies (a.k.a. M&M's!)
- Heat oven to 250 degrees. Spray a large roasting pan with cooking spray. Measure the cereal into the pan.
- In a 3-quart saucepan stir together brown sugar, butter and corn syrup. (WARNING: Resist the urge to use a smaller pan - the baking soda makes it bubble up!) Cook and stir 8-9 minutes over medium heat until mixture heats to boiling. Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in baking soda. Pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated.
- Bake 40-50 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes, until coating is set. Cool 5 minutes; stir in candies. Spread on parchment paper to cool, about 10 minutes. Break into pieces. Store in an airtight container.
