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

DIRECTIONS:

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.
