Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C). Spray a large roasting pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium-size microwave safe bowl, mix butter, white corn syrup and brown sugar. Place the mixture in the microwave and cook 2 minutes, or until butter melts.
  3. Place the cereal, pecans and almonds into the prepared roasting pan. Pour the melted butter mixture over the cereal and nuts and mix gently until the cereal and nuts are coated.
  4. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
  5. As the snack mix is cooling, be sure to continue to stir so that the mix will not harden in one big lump.

Great snack mix! I also found it a bit sweet the first time I made it, so the next time I used salted nuts (pecans, cashews and almonds) and also added some pretzels. It was a big hit with my family!

Absolutely addictive! Made this for our company party and had several requests for the recipe. This recipe is change friendly as far as type of nuts and that sort of thing. BE SURE to stir every few minutes after you take it out of the oven to keep it from sticking in one big glob.

Great! Hard to stop eating once you start. Everyone that I gave this to has requested the recipe. I lined the pan with foil and sprayed with Pam before mixing everything. Made clean-up VERY easy.
