This crisp crunch mix is perfect not only for snacking while cuddling on the couch watching Hocus Pocus for the 4th time (but who’s keeping count?!) It also makes for a fantastic (yet frugal!) tasty gift at only $13 a pop!
(Pick up these spunky custom gift tags on etsy at Panazze!)
4 cups Rice Chex cereal
4 cups Corn Chex cereal
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 stick unsalted butter
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350
In a heavy sauce pan over medium heat, melt butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup until mixture comes to a boil. Stir consistently and let boil for 1 minute. Mix cereal in a large mixing bowl. Mix white sugar and cinnamon in a small zip lock bag. Pour hot mixture over cereal and coat evenly. Pour cinnamon sugar over cereal and mix. Spend cereal on covered backing sheet. Bake for 5 minutes, then flip the cereal and bake for another 3 minutes or until cereal turns golden brown. Remove from the oven and let completely cool. Once cool store in an airtight container or a fun Apothecary jar like me!
