I made this stuff last year and this year, when I went to retrieve the recipe from the link I had saved, it was gone! The blog has been removed!! OH NO! Fortunately, Handsome is very clever in the computer department and he was able to find it, even though it was no longer there. MAGIC.
So now I’m going to write the recipe down for my own reference so I can never lose it again. It’s awesome, easy, and I dare you to take just one bite. Oh, and just for full disclosure, I just wrote the word ‘bite’ as ‘bight’. Thank goodness for the delete button. I’m immersed in phonics at the moment, that’s all I can say.
Christmas Trail Mix
17 oz box Crispix cereal (can also use Chex), 1 jar salted peanuts, 1 small bag holiday shaped pretzels (I’ve never found these) - mix together.
1/3 cup Karo syrup, 1 1/2 cup brown sugar, 3/4 cup margerine - boil 2-3 minutes
Add: 1/2 tsp cream of tartar, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp vanilla - boil again
Pour over cereal mix (use a LARGE bowl) and stir to coat. Bake on jelly roll pans at 350 for 5 minutes. Tir, bake for another 3-5 minutes. Cool on waxed paper. Pour red/green MnMs over mix. Enjoy!
I’m putting this into large mason jars I found at a garage sale back in May, a dozen for $1, and giving them to Sunday School teachers this Sunday.
