St. Patrick's Day Chex Mix Recipe - such a fun and easy treat! Recipe at www.overthebigmoon.com!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups Corn Chex or Crispix
  • 2 cups Pretzels
  • 3 cups Honey Teddy Grahams
  • 1/2 cup cashew pieces (optional)
  • Cooking Spray
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 6 TBS light corn syrup (Karos)
  • 3 TBS butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 C Chocolate Gold Coins
  • 1/2 C Green Chocolate Candies (I used mint m&m’s)
  • St. Patrick’s Day Sprinkles

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 250 F
  2. Combine first 4 ingredient on a jelly roll pan (I like these because the lip keeps the stuff from falling off when you stir). I found it was easier too leave it mounded (not spread out) for the next step.
  3. Combine brown sugar, corn syrup, and butter in a small saucepan; cook over medium heat 2 minutes or until sugar and butter melt, stirring constantly. You don’t want to cook it so long that it thickens because then it’s harder to coat all the pieces. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla and salt. Immediately pour syrup mixture evenly over cereal mixture, tossing quickly to coat well.
  4. Bake at 250F for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
  5. Have your sprinkles open and ready when you pull the cookie sheet out as the mix cools fast. Sprinkle generously then spread warm snack mix in a single layer on wax paper to cool.
  6. Break cooled snack mix apart.
  7. When ready to serve or gift add in remaining ingredients.
  8. Store in an airtight container.
