I've made this every christmas for the past 4 years, and it's so addicting! The only change I made was to use a large can of deluxe mixed nuts in place of the pecans and almonds. A few lessons learned:
- Use the biggest roasting pan you can find, otherwise the cereal spills out while stirring.
- Use a large silicone spatula to stir - it stirs easily, helps get all of the caramel off of the sides, and is gentle on the cereal so you don't break as much.
- *** THE MOST IMPORTANT (and time consuming) PART: Stir while cooling. At first, stir at least once every 5 minutes. Once it feels like the caramel is not quite as sticky, you can stir every 10 minutes. If you wait 10 minutes at first, they'll stick together and you end up breaking the cereal. I usually keep stirring constantly for the first 5 - 10 minutes. Again, use the silicone spatula. It's a lot of stirring, but it makes a huge difference. Once it has completely cooled, I store in an airtight container. YUM!!!
