Wishing you and yours a Very Merry Christmas!
My gift to you is the recipe for my most requested treat, Caramel Chex! I only make it one time a year for a very specific reason:
It’s ridiculously addicting.
Consider yourself warned.
Step 1: Heat sugars and butter over medium heat. On a prepared baking sheet spread out cereal, nuts and coconut.
Step 2: Coat cereal mixture with caramel mix. Try not to drool.
Step 3: Stir well, place in oven for 24 minutes, stirring every eight minutes to assure every cereal bit gets equally coated.
Step 4: After the 24 minute baking time spread mixture out on greased parchment paper making sure to create an even layer.
Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes, stir and break up with your fingers, continue cooling until caramel has set.
Step 5: Try to keep your significant other out of it
Step 6: Store as desired. I place mine in Gallon zip lock bags and add M&M’s. As the Chex settles it will stick together, creating clumps, so keeping it stored in baggies allows you to massage the chex mix to break it up.
I hope you enjoy family, friends, food and drinks over the next few days.
