6 cups Corn Chex or Rice Chex (or a combination)
6 cups Golden Grahams
2 cups nuts
1 cup coconut
3/4 cup butter
1 cup corn syrup
1 cup white sugar
Place cereals, nuts and coconut in a large bowl. In a medium saucepan combine the butter, corn syrup and sugar. Stirring occasionally, bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 2 minutes. Pour immediately over the cereal mixture and stir to combine well. Pour onto wax paper lined baking sheets to cool, then break into bite size chunks.
I should probably warn you, I could eat all 14 cups of this stuff by myself. It's addicting. You might want to plan on giving some away. Your friends and neighbors will love you for it. I like to use peanuts or slivered almonds in the recipe, but any type of nuts (or no nuts at all) will work. And if you don't like coconut, you can leave that out too. Store brand Chex cereals work just fine in this recipe, but the store brand Golden Grahams tend to go soggy. The name brand version stays nice and crunchy, so I don't usually skimp there. The candy coating on this snack mix is meant to be a little chewy, so don't overcook it or it will harden into one solid mass. I would probably still eat it all though.
