- 2 cups brown sugar
- 3⁄4 cup light corn syrup

- Bring butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup to a boil.
- Boil 2 minutes.
- Remove from heat and add baking soda (it will foam).
- Put the cereal in a large bowl and pour the boiled mixture over the cereal and stir to coat.
- Bake 1 hour at 200-250F degrees.
- Stir every 15 minutes.
- You may add nuts if you desire.
Very easy to make! Be sure to use a LARGE pot, as the mixture will foam to double the size! Added pretzels and honey roasted peanuts after mixing in caramel and re-mixed before baking. Yummy! Be sure to 'fold' in caramel, not 'stir', as it will decrease Crispix breaking up.
Made this as a snack to take along camping. I had trouble mixing in the boiled mixture into the cereal without the cereal crumbling, however it still tasted good. Thanks for posting!
