No tricks, just Halloween Party treats for kids! (and adults too!)
Family celebrations for generations have always had some kind of “Chex Mix” bowl on the table. Whether it was a sweet or savory combination, it was one constant treat everyone enjoyed. Check out this nifty little twist on Chex Mix by using another delicious cereal, Crispix!
I don’t know about you, but I have always preferred Crispix to Chex. There was something more satisfying about the puffy, almost 3D version of Chex! This is the party mix I have been waiting for.
Caramel Corn Treat Mix
- 1 Large Box of Crispix cereal
- 1 bag of microwaved popcorn
- 1 cup of nuts (choose your favorite! Almonds, cashews or peanuts)
- 1 cup of butter
- 2 cups of brown sugar
- 1/2 cup Lt. Karo Syrup
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- Preheat the oven to 250 degrees
- In a large bowl, combine the cereal, popcorn and nuts. Set it aside.
- On the stove, combine the butter, brown sugar and karo syrup in a saucepan over high heat. Make sure you are stirring constantly!
- Bring this mixture to a rolling boil for 3-4 minutes.
- Remove from the heat and add in vanilla and baking soda.
- Slowly add the syrup to the bowl and stir to combine.
- Once the mixture is completely coated, spread onto a large baking sheet in a single layer.
- Bake for one hour, stirring the mixture every 15 minutes.
- Allow it to cool completely before breaking into pieces.
- If you are not serving right away, store in an airtight container.
Pro Tip: If you want to make a double batch, increase the popcorn to 3 bags with double the syrup mixture. Bake for an extra 15 minutes.
Big Thanks to Melissa Meraz for sharing this recipe with me!
I love looking at the different areas we already have here in Venice for picnics and invite my daughter’s friends to join us! We are so blessed to live in a place that has amazing weather all year long.
