I got the recipe from my aunt when I wanted to make a snack for a brunch I was hosting. The brimming bowls I set out were emptied in no time. —Milia Ziegler, Cincinnati, Ohio
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, cubed
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup
- 1 package (12 ounces) Crispix cereal
- 1-1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
- In a large saucepan, bring the brown sugar, butter and corn syrup to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Spread cereal in a large roasting pan. Pour syrup mixture over cereal and stir until well coated. Sprinkle with nuts and stir.
- Bake at 250° for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Break apart and store in airtight containers. Yield: 15 cups.

"it is very easy and my husband said be sure to make this again... I will try adding some cinnamon, but liked it very much just the way it is.."
