There are several Sweet Mixes listed here.

IF THERE IS AN INGREDIENT WITH AN AMOUNT LISTED BEHIND IT IN PARENTHESES( ), THAT IS MY VARIATION.
1In large microwavable bowl, mix cereals, snacks and peanuts; set aside. In 4 cup pyrex measuring cup or medium microwavable bowl, microwave corn syrup, honey and butter uncovered on High about 3 to 4 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth and beginning to thicken. Stir in vanilla. Drizzle about 1/3 of the coating over cereal mixture and stir ; repeat twice the drizzle and stir, and then stir well until evenly coated. If you have a two tined turning fork, this makes a good stirring tool as it does not crush the cereal as much as a spoon or spatula.
3Because I doubled the coating mixture, it took additional time to cook the coating, so I have changed the recipe directions to reflect the longer times. You will also notice that I added some extra cereal and crackers. And finally I took half of the mix,added some pecans to it and then sprinkled it with about a half tsp of cinnamon before the final cooking stage for a different taste. This mix is not too sweet. It has a very delicate sweetness.
