Caramel Crunch Recipe
- 9 cups popped popcorn
- 9 cups Crispix cereal
- 1 cup slivered almonds
- 1 cup butter, cubed
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup
- 2 cups packed brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- In a very large heat-proof bowl, combine the popcorn, cereal and almonds; set aside. In a large heavy-duty saucepan, melt butter; stir in corn syrup and brown sugar. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook 5 minutes longer, stirring occasionally.
- Remove from the heat. Stir in baking soda. (Mixture will foam up and get lighter in color.) Carefully pour over popcorn mixture; stir to coat evenly.
- Transfer to two 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pans coated with cooking spray. Bake at 250° for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight containers. Yield: about 4-1/2 quarts.

This is very good. It's very easy to make too. I will be making this every Christmas from now on!!!
this is awesome. Easy to make and delicious! Its a keeper
I can't tell you how many times I have made this snack; Christmas gifts, movie treat for the grandkids, neighbor children's birthday parties and more. We had a charity bake sale at work and I made four batches dividing them into quart size zip bags. They were gone in less than 30 minutes.
We loved it! I used mixed nuts instead of almonds, and it was great. I'll definitely make it again!
