Sweet Cereal Mix - a family favorite

This sweet cereal mix has become one of my family's favorite treats. It is perfect for a tailgate party, movie night  or after school snack.  It is good anytime of the year, but something about making it around Christmas makes it even more irresistible! 

The recipe is super simple!
2   12 oz boxes of Crispix cereal
1   cup whole almonds
1   cup pecans
1   cup cashews
14 Tablespoons butter or margarine
2   cups brown sugar
1   cup light corn syrup
1 1/2 Tablespoon vanilla
*  I realize the ingredients for this recipe can be quite costly, but it is sooo good it is worth it.  Watch for sales at the grocery.
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.

Mix the first four ingredients together in a large container and set aside.  In a small saucepan heat the next three ingredients.
Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly, 
remove from heat and add vanilla.  Stir.

Pour over cereal mixture and stir until well coated.

 Spread into a large roasting pan coated with cooking spray.
Bake for 1 hour.  Stir every 15 minutes.

Spread on wax paper to cool.

Irresistibly sweet & delicious!
