I can't really rate this since I made a lot of changes! I found out, after I had already started the recipe, that I didn't have quite enough corn syrup on hand. So I wound up using about 1/2 cup corn syrup and 1/2 cup of honey. Then I replaced the Rice Chex cereal with popcorn! Then, to crisp the popcorn, I baked it for 30 minutes or more (I wasn't paying complete attention) and stirred it every 10 minutes (every 5 towards the end). Anyway, we loved it, so thanks! :)
- 1 (17 5/8 ounce) package Rice Chex
- 2 3⁄4 cups sliced almonds
- 1 cup sugar (I use Splenda)
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 3⁄4 cup butter
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
