Be prepared, if you are going to make this mix. It is quite addictive! We have used several different cereal mixes, including all Chex cereals, and Life cereal. We also love to use pretzel spinzel sticks, as a different version, but really any hard pretzels can be used. Enjoy!
2Spray rimmed baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Mix cereals, nuts, and broken pretzels together on sheet. Set aside.
3Place butter and brown sugar in a medium-sized, heavy saucepan. Heat on medium high until mixture begins boiling, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low and continue boiling for 3 minutes, while continuing to stir.
4Carefully pour hot caramel mixture onto cereal mix, trying to coat each piece. Stir by turning over with a spatula.
5Bake mixture for 8 minutes. Remove and stir.
6Return to oven, bake an additional 5 minutes, and remove from oven. Stir mixture one last time and allow to cool completely.
7Break up any large pieces and store in a covered, plastic container.
