This makes a great food gift for the holidays, as well as a delicious snack for football games! My sister, Jenny, sent this recipe in 2008. I made it & shared it with the teachers at my school, where it has been a big hit since. =^..^=
In a large microwave-safe bowl, mix together the Rice Chex, pretzels, and nuts.
In a smaller microwave-safe bowl, put butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup. (I use a 4 cup glass measuring cup.)
Microwave the brown sugar mixture for 1 minute, then quickly stir. Microwave for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes more.
Stir in vanilla and baking soda & pour over the Rice Chex mixture. Toss well & place large bowl in the microwave, cooking for 4-5 minutes, stirring twice.
Quickly spread out on wax paper (or my favorite silicone baking sheets) & let cool. Break larger pieces. Store in an air-tight container.
NOTE: With my current microwave, I microwave for 1 minute, then 2 minutes & 15 seconds for Step #3. Then I microwave for 4 minutes & 15 seconds for Step #4. Every microwave is different, so don't be afraid to experiment. You don't want the snack to be sticky.
Sweet Chex Crunch makes a great food gift, so line some tins with aluminum foil and share your goodies. =^..^=
