SWEET AND SALTY PARTY MIX:
1-10.5 BAG OF FRITOS
2 CUPS RICE CHEX MIX
2 CUPS PRETZEL TWISTS
1-1/2 CUP NUTS
1-CUP PACKED, LIGHT BROWN SUGAR
1 STICK OF BUTTER
½ CUP LIGHT CORN SYRUP
1 CUP MINI M&Ms
PREHEAT OVEN TO 350.
In a large bowl combine the Fritos, Rice Chex, pretzels and nuts. Set aside.
In a small saucepan melt the brown sugar, butter and corn syrup over medium heat. Let the mixture come to a boil and then let it boil for 4 minutes, without stirring. Remove the pan from the heat and pour over frito mixture. Stir carefully to coat everything evenly. Transfer the mix to a large cookie sheet and bake for 8 minutes. Stir the snack mix, and then bake for 8 more minutes.
Transfer the mixture to a wax paper lined counter and let it cool completely before breaking into large clumps. When cooled completely add the mini M&Ms over the mix. The mix can be stored in an airtight container for up to a week.
