I know some of you probably have company headed your way soon, so I thought I would post this recipe since it is super easy and yummy. This is a great thing to have on hand because it can be a dessert or a snack. Perfect at home or to bring to a party. It travels well and stays fresh for a long time. You can throw it in a big bowl and let folks just have at it or you can package it in little baggies and tie with a ribbon for individual servings. I used it this year as part of my Christmas basket.
7 cups Crispix Cereal
1 cup whole pecans
1/2 cup roughly chopped almonds
1/2 cup salted pretzels (sticks or twists)
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
In a large bowl mix together Crispix, nuts, and pretzels. Combined corn syrup, sugar, and butter in a microwavable dish. Microwave on high for 1 min. Stir until all melted and combined. Then add in the vanilla and baking powder and microwave for another 30 sec. Stir one more time and then pour over Crispix mixture. Lightly toss until it is evenly coated. Then put it into a 9×13 greased baking dish and bake at 250 for 1 hour. Take it out and dump it over onto parchment paper. Let it allow to completely cool and then break apart and serve.
