For a great change of pace from the usual mix, try this recipe from Carol Allen, field editor at McLeansboro, Illinois. "It's almost impossible to stop eating this sweet and salty snack."

Ingredients

  • 6 cups Crispix
  • 1 can (10 ounces) mixed nuts
  • 1 package (10 ounces) pretzel sticks
  • 3/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the cereal, nuts and pretzels. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt butter. Add brown sugar; cook and stir until dissolved. Pour over cereal mixture; stir to coat.
  2. Place a third on a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake at 325° for 8 minutes; stir and bake for 6 minutes more. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Repeat with remaining mixture.
