#3444 - Caramel Chex Mix

(by Rachel [Guarini] Magid - friend)

4 cups plain popped popcorn
2 cups Corn Chex cereal
2 cups Rice Chex cereal
1 cup mixed nuts (optional)
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup Domino's dark brown sugar (packed)
1/4 cup Kayro lite corn syrup
1/2 cup Nestle's white chocolate chips
1/2 cup Ocean Spray sweetened dried cranberries

In a roasting pan add plain popped popcorn, corn chex, rice chex and mixed nuts--stir and set aside. In a saucepan over medium heat add butter, brown sugar and lite corn syrup--cook/stir until boiling. Remove from heat--pour the hot corn syrup mixture evenly over the cereal mixture--stir/toss to coat. Place the pan in the oven and bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour (stirring every 15 minutes). Remove from oven and spread the mixture on wax paper to cool. Use your hands to break up any large clumps. Melt the white chocolate chips according to bag directions. In a bowl add 3 cups of the cereal mixture--pour the melted white chocolate chips over the 3 cups of cereal mixture--stir/toss to coat, then spread the mixture on wax paper to cool. Once coated cereal mixture is cooled, in a large mixing bowl add the plain cereal mixture, the white chocolate coated cereal mixture and the dried cranberries--toss to mix.
