Caramel Chex Mix

Contributed By: Parker


2 cups each Rice Chex, Corn Chex and Wheat Chex
2 cups miniature pretzels
2 cups pecan halves
2 cups salted cashews
3/4 cup butter, cubed
3/4 cup packed brown sugar


1. In a large bowl, combine the cereal, pretzels and nuts. In a small saucepan, combine butter and brown sugar. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, 2 minutes. Pour over cereal mixture; toss to coat.
2. Spread into two greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pans. Bake at 350° for 8 minutes. Stir; bake 6 minutes longer. Transfer to waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Cool completely. Store in airtight containers.

Helpful Hints:

This wonderfully crunchy snack is loaded with cereal, pretzels and nuts—and coated with a not-too-sweet brown sugar mixture. Package this up as gifts, or set out a bowl at your party and watch it disappear by the handful.
