"This sweet, salty, caramely snack mix recipe was given to me several years ago by a coworker. I make it for parties, game nights, and, of course, Super Bowls®." — Kimniki

white corn syrup
crispy wheat cereal squares (such as Wheat Chex®)
1 1/2 cups
I was looking for a recipe to use the leftovers from the Original Chex Mix, and this fit the bill. I used a 4-cup measure for the butter, brown sugar and corn syrup mixture and was glad I did, as the mixture rises while cooking. This was cooked in an 1100-watt microwave for a total of five minutes, stopping once at 3 minutes to stir. This was then poured over the Chex/pretzel/nut mixture and stirred to coat. The mixture did not coat well. If I make this again, I'll cook it for less time yet-possibly 4 or 4.5 minutes-to allow the mixtue to be thin enough to coat well. I would also reduce the pretzels to one cup, as I felt the pretzel taste dominated the mixture. This is a quick snack if you have the ingredients and need something fast. It is a typical sweet/salty mixture, good but not great.
