Ingredients Nutrition

  • Cereal mix

  • 1 (15 ounce) box Corn Chex
  • 1 (15 ounce) box Rice Chex
  • 1 (15 ounce) box Golden Grahams cereal
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • Syrup

  • 1 12 cups butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups white syrup (Karo)

Directions

  1. Put ingredients for "cereal mix" in a very large pan or bowl (I use my tamale pan and spray it with Pam).
  2. Put ingredients for "syrup" in a 5 quart pan on medium high heat and stir constantly until it comes to a rolling boil.
  3. Boil for 2 to 3 minutes and no longer!
  4. Remove syrup from heat and cool for 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Pour syrup over cereal mix and stir with long-handled spoon until all cereal is well coated.
  6. While cooling completely, stir every 5 to 10 minutes to prevent clumping.
  7. Eat immediately or store in ziplock bags or similar containers. To me, it actually tastes better the next day.
