    Recipe Introduction

    This blend of corn chips, pretzels, nuts and candies is tossed in a sweet syrup and baked. It's a great mix to have around for snacking and parties!

    List of Ingredients

    15.5 ounces Fritos corn chips
    2 cups Rice Chex cereal
    2 cups pretzel twists
    1 1/2 cups nuts (walnuts, peanut, cashews suggested)
    1 cup packed light brown sugar
    1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
    1/2 cup light corn syrup
    1 cup mini M&M's


    Preheat oven to 350F.
    In a large bowl combine the Fritos, Chex, Pretzels and nuts. Set aside.

    In a small saucepan melt the sugar, butter and corn syrup over medium heat. Let the mixture come to a boil and then boil for 4 minutes without stirring.
    Remove the pan from heat and pour over the Frito mixture, stirring to coat evenly. Transfer the mix to a large roasting pan and bake for 8 minutes. Remove to stir and bake for an additional 8 minutes.

    Transfer the mixture to a wax paper lined counter and let it cool completely before breaking into large clumps. When cooled sprinkle M&Ms over mix. Store in an airtight container for up to a week.

    Makes 16 servings (1/2 cup ea.)
