Sweet-O Snack Mix


This fun snack mix is a little bit more complicated to make than the average snack mix, but is a lot of fun and tastes great. You can use your favorite brand and flavor "O" cereal for this recipe. I love using the Apple Cinnamon variety.

6 cups "O" cereal
1 1/2 cups raisins
1 cup peanuts
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees and grease a large baking sheet. In a large bowl mix together the cereal, raisins, and peanuts. In a small heavy saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the brown sugar, corn syrup, cinnamon, and salt. Stirring frerquently, bring to a boil. Boil for five minutes, stir in the baking soda, then immediately pour over the cereal mixture. Toss to coat, being careful of the hot butter mixture. Spread on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Serve warm or cool and store in a tightly sealed container.
