Cari's notes for this recipe:
I always make this for Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday. I have to double the batch because it does not last.
Also makes a great Homemade Christmas gift.

Directions

1
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9-by-13-inch baking pan and set aside. (You can use the butter wrapper or nonstick spray.) Or, for easier cleanup, line the pan with parchment.
2
Pour the cereal, pecans and pretzels into a 3-quart or larger bowl or cooking pot and toss to mix.
3
In a small saucepan, begin melting the butter over medium-high heat. Stir in the brown sugar, and bring the mixture to a boil. Cook at a moderate boil for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and pour at once over the cereal mix. Toss lightly to coat the mix as well as possible.
4
Pour the cereal mix into the baking pan and bake, uncovered, for 8 minutes. Remove from the oven, stir gently, and then continue to bake 8 minutes more. Remove from the oven and allow the mix to cool to room temperature (in the pan), about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
5
Keeps for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container or tin.
