Candy Crack

My dear aunt sent me this recipe and told me that I had to try it...I gathered up the ingredient and made it the day she sent the recipe. I instantly fell head over heels in love with it!!! ITS AMAZING, SWEET AND super addictive!...I wanted more, and MOre and MORE!!! One of her friends gave her the recipe and said that her husband had taken it to work and his coworkers started calling it "CrAcK" because it was so addicting!...Hence the name "Candy Crack"! Your kids will adore it, your husband will become an addict and you will be stuck in the kitchen making it continually (secretly being an addict yourself)....its fantastic and I can't get enough of it!! Its a great "pot luck" snack to serve at parties...just think, you can get all your family and friends addicted too.........I haven't met a person who didn't like it! YUM YUM YUM!!!!
Thank you for the recipe, Aunt Saundra
and a big THANK YOU to Shaela Odd for sharing it with my Aunt!
I will forever be grateful to you both!!!!
Its become my favorite snack!!!

Candy Crack
Toss together~
1 12oz box Rice Chex
1 12oz box Corn Chex
1 12oz box Golden Grahams
3 c. mini pretzels (I couldn't find these so I used the pretzel sticks)
2 c. shredded sweetened coconut
2 c. sliced almonds

2 c. butter (NOT margarine)
2 1/2 c. sugar
1 c. light corn syrup

Melt butter in a large saucepan. Add sugar and corn syrup and stir until dissolved. Heat on medium-high heat until boiling. Stir constantly. Boil for 1 minutes, then pour immediately over Chex mixture. Stir to coat evenly. Spread out on wax or parchment paper to cool. Store in an airtight container.

*NOTE~ This makes a GIGANTIC BATCH...word to the wise...if you don't have a large crowd to feed it to just make 1/2 the recipe! I made the entire batch and shared it with my neighbors, and that worked too...you won't want it to be sitting around your house. Its like a bag of LAYS POTATO CHIP, you can't eat JUST ONE!...SO REMEMBER, WE ARE ALL NEIGHBORS, and I JUST MIGHT LIVE DOWN THE STREET FROM YOU...sharing is a GOOD thing (I can just taste it now)!
