Total Time

Instead of the usual savory cereal snack mix, this version gets just the right amount of sweetness from brown sugar and corn syrup. —Barbara Strohbehn, Gladbrook, Iowa

Ingredients

  • 6 cups Rice Chex
  • 6 cups Corn Chex
  • 6 cups Crispix
  • 1 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Grease three 15x10x1-in. baking pans; set aside. In a large heat-proof bowl, combine the cereals; set aside.
  2. In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, bring the butter, brown sugar and corn syrup to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. Pour over cereal and stir until well coated.
  3. Transfer to prepared pans. Bake, uncovered, at 200° for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool completely. Break apart and store in airtight containers.
