Cranberry Almond Chex Mix



We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Chex Mix....and by that I mean alot!!! This our families favorite Chex mix and it has become tradition to make it every year around Christmas time. Careful though, because it is very addicting and It goes pretty dang fast. In fact my husband and I have been staying at my parents house for the weekend and yesterday I made a big batch of this and then went to church for a couple of hours. Well by the time I was back from church my family had devoured it. I should have known better :)

Ingredients

3 cups Wheat Chex cereal
3 cups Rice Chex cereal
6 cups of Golden Grahams cereal
3/4 cup grated coconut
1 1/2 cups dried cranberries
1 cup slivered almonds
1 cup Karo syrup
3/4 cup butter
1 cup sugar

Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl ( excluding sugar). Then heat the butter, Karo syrup, and sugar in sauce pan over medium heat while stirring. Once all the sugar has dissolved and it starts boiling let it boil for 2-3 minutes. It will expand into a frothy like substance ( this is good because it will coat the chex mix evenly). Immediately pour over dry ingredients and mix. Then spread wax paper over 2 big cookie sheets and spread apart the mixture on the cookie sheets so that it doesn't all clump together. Let cool for atleast 15 minutes and then EAT!!

Super easy and super delicious!!! It could make a great treat for neighbors or to share at your holiday parties
