Sweet and salty snack mix

This is VERY addictive!

I made this for the first time last year, but it disappeared before I could get a photo of it.This year I took one right away!

It's just as it's name applies...slightly sweet.....slightly handful after the other!!!!

southern living

5 c. Crispex cereal

1 (6 oz. can) roasted and salted almonds
 1/2 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. butter
1/4 c. corn syrup
3 c. Bugles (added at the end before serving)

Mix the Crispex, pretzels, nuts, almonds in a large bowl. In a saucepan, mix the brown sugar, butter and corn syrup. Stir until sugar is dissolved and butter is melted. Toss with the dry mixture to coat. Spread on lightly greased foil lined cookie sheet. Bake at 325 for 20 minutes, stirring twice. Place on wax paper to cool. When completely cooled, add the bugles and stir. Store in air tight containers.

This beats the heck out of regular Chex mix! It sounds delicious, crunchy and good! It was all of 7 degrees here today and probably about the same where you are. Stay warm and have a Merry Christmas!
