"I was given this recipe from a good friend. It was really good. Then I toasted the coconut and almonds and it was really, really good! Great finger food for watching football and parties!"

This recipe is addictively delicious!! However, I don't have a bowl big enough to mix this in and my biggest bowl is pretty huge. I had to mix it in 2 separate bowls and maybe didn't get it mixed as good as it could have been. I would recommend making a half batch. I also think the corn syrup and sugar mixture should be cooked to a couple degrees less than recommended. Mine was slightly to hard, not quite soft. Overall, this is an awesome snack!
As written, this is just fine. As the previous reviewer mentioned, it makes a HUGE batch- I halved the recipe and it filled up 1 1/2 gallon freezer bags. I added 1 tsp of sea salt to the candy mixture before cooking at a little vanilla at the end. Despite bringing the candy to the correct temperature, this was very tacky and unpleasant to chew after it cooled. I decided to throw it back in the oven at 250 like you would with caramel corn, since the candy mixture was very similar. I left it in for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes and it turned out perfectly! I allowed it to cool in single layer on wax paper.
As written, this is way too chewy. However, other reviewers suggested putting it in a 250 degree oven for an hour (stirring every 15 minutes) and 45 minutes actually does the trick. If you're going to make the entire batch, mix it up in a BIG roasting pan that you can then transfer to the oven. I lightly toasted the coconut and almonds at first because I knew they would get extra time in the oven at the end. I also used a big spatula for the stirring and coated it with PAM to make things go easier. Then spread it out on parchment paper to quickly cool like caramel popcorn. Next time I will spray the roaster with PAM as well and maybe add a little vanilla toward the end of the cooking for the sugar mixture. So good but the directions are a bit off. (Oh, and you'll end up with lots of little coconut bits and almonds not attached to the cereal. I put it in a bag and will use for topping yogurt, ice cream, pudding, etc.)
