I found this recipe not too long ago and for the life of me I can’t remember where. I’m sure it was one of the cooking blogs I follow…but I can’t recall which one. It might have been mommyskitchen.net. She’s got a lot of fun stuff over there. I say all that to say this. You’ve gotta try Christmas Crack!! It’s so good and sure does live up to its name cuz this stuff is addicting!! It makes quite a bit…I filled up two gallon sized zip-top bags. It’s great for parties…one of those things that people will mindlessly munch on while chatting or take it to a cookie/treat exchange! Adults and kids alike will love it!
1 12.8-ounce box Rice Chex cereal
1 12-ponce box Golden Grahams cereal
1 7-ounce bag shredded coconut
1 4-ounce bag slivered almonds
1 1/2 cups butter (3…yes 3…sticks of butter)
2 cups sugar
2 cups corn syrup
Combine Rice Chex and Golden Grahams, coconut and almonds in a large mixing bowl.
Stir to combine.
In a large sauce pan, cook butter, sugar and corn syrup to the “soft ball” stage…about 234 degrees on a candy thermometer.
Pour over cereal mixture and stir until all is well coated.
Pour mixture out onto 2 large cookie sheets to cool.
Stir it around occasionally to prevent clumping. Store in an airtight container
