Sweet Cereal Mix

I am a sucker for any type of  "trail mix-type" food.  Even a handful of GORP (Good Ol' Raisins and Peanuts -- with a handful of chocolate chips thrown in for good measure!) makes me happy.  This is a fun twist that I hadn't tried before, but have made three times since finding the recipe.  Maybe I can get a picture next time before my family* scarfs it down.

*by "my family," I mean me.  And my two-year-old.

3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup dark corn syrup
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
1/2 box rice or corn chex
1/3 box of wheat chex
2 cups mini pretzels
1/2 box cheerios
1/2 bag honey teddy grahams 

Preheat your oven to 250 degrees. Grease 2 deep 9 x 13 inch foil pans. Mix all the cereal, pretzels and teddy grahams together and divide between the two foil tins, set aside. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and then add in the corn syrup and brown sugar. Pour the mixture over the two tins of cereal and mix to coat well. Bake for 1 hour, making sure to stir the cereal every 15 minutes or so. Spread cereal onto GREASED waxed paper to separate and cool. Eat and enjoy your party in sweet-delish style!!


  1. I didn't see this before. I am going to have to do this one for conference weekend. Sean loves GORP!

  2. I find it interesting that I hadn't made this in quite awhile (though I made it three or four times when it was first posted) and then I got it in my head that we need to have it for General Conference so I come to get the recipe and see Amy's comment.
    I love this stuff. I throw in a cup of whole almonds when I make it since I love nuts so much.
