Yields1 Serving
Prep Time5 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time15 mins

Ingredients:
 1 - 12 oz box Rice Chex Cereal
 1 - 12 oz Box Golden Grahams Cereal
 7 oz Shredded Coconut
 4 oz Slivered Almonds, Peanuts (or a combination of both!)
 1 ½ cups Butter
 2 cups Sugar
 2 cups Light Corn Syrup

1

Combine Rice Chex and Golden Grahams, coconut and almonds in a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine.

2

In a large sauce pan, cook butter, sugar and corn syrup to what is called "soft ball" stage (235°F - 240°F on a candy thermometer).

3

Pour the sauce over cereal mixture and stir until all is well coated. Pour mixture out onto 2 large cookie sheets to cool. Stir it around occasionally to prevent clumping. Store in an airtight container (That is if there's any left!)

What is Softball Stage you ask?
4

This is the temperature in which sugar syrup dropped into cold water will form a soft, flexible ball. Fun fact: If you remove the ball from water, it will flatten like a pancake after a few moments in your hand.
