Caramel Crispix (Crack) along with a few red and green holiday m&m candies is a relatively quick way to create gifts and snacks during the holidays. It is super addictive and I do not know how many compliments I have received from the lightly sweetened and salty, crispy cereal mix. True examples of this positive affirmation include “Damn girl, can I have the recipe!” or “I ate the whole bag in one sitting!” or “Yay!” or “My kids loved it!”
Adapted from AllRecipes
- 12 oz box of Crispix-spread into two 9 x 13 pans (I have yet to try with Chex Mix, but will test this another time)
- ¼ cup Karo syrup (light only)
- 1 cup light brown sugar or regular brown sugar
- ½ cup butter (1 stick)
Mix together in saucepan and bring to boil. Boil for 1 ½ minutes ONLY. Pour over cereal. Bake @ 325 for 8 minutes. Stir and bake another 8 minutes. Then pour out on wax paper, let cool, break it up. Add medium bag plain M&M’s (or peanut).
Sugar, corn syrup and butter boiled for 1 1/2 minute.
