Cinnamon Caramel Snack Mix

Last week was SUPER busy at work and I had no time for crafting or cooking. Thankfully this weekend brought 18 inches of snow and plenty of time to hang out inside and create :) I have lots of projects to share but I wanted to start this week off with a new recipe I tried out yesterday. Our friends Sarah and Dan had everyone over to watch the Super Bowl and I made Cinnamon Caramel Snack Mix and Buffalo Chicken Dip. The Cinnamon Caramel Snack Mix was a hit! Here is my recipe version for it:

Cinnamon Caramel Snack Mix

  • 4 c. plain, air popped pop corn
  • 4 c. Corn Chex
  • 2 c. pretzel sticks
  • 2 c. Cheerios
  • 1 can mixed nuts
  • 1 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1/2 c. light corn syrup
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 12 oz. bag of chocolate chips

Mix popcorn, Corn Chex, pretzels, Cheerios and nuts in a roaster pan; set aside. Heat sugar, butter and syrup to boil; reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, baking soda and cinnamon. Pour over cereal mixture and stir good. Bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Spread out on wax paper to cool. Melt chocolate over double boiler and drizzle over top of mix. When cooled, break up into smaller pieces and enjoy!
