by popular demand...

sorry no picture of this one yet, i'm making it today, so i'll add it later. i have make this for work a few times & everyone always asks for the recipe. so here it is. it is a little different than normal chex mix. you can add whatever mix-ins you would like. this last time i got coconut covered cashews from costco & did those with white chocolate chips. it was super sweet, but really yummy.

sticky sweet chex mix

2 sticks margarine, not butter!
2 cups brown sugar
3/4 cup light corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 large box chex cereal, i use corn, rice or a mix of both
mix-ins of your choice...
nuts, candy, dried fruit, chocolate chips, coconut, ect.

in a large pot melt margarine, sugar, corn syrup, vanilla & salt. bring to a full boil. turn off heat & add baking soda. the mixture will begin to foam... a lot! this is good! stir until mixture is really foamy, about a 30-60 seconds.
place cereal & mix-ins in a large bowl & stir to combine. **if you are using chocolate, just mix the cereal & the syrup together & stir until cooled down a bit. don't add until mixture has cooled slightly, or all your chocolate will melt!
pour onto a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper or parchment. let cool. break apart & put into a bowl.
eat yourself sick:)
