How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Combine cereal and next 2 ingredients in a very large bowl.

Melt butter in a 3-qt. saucepan over medium-low heat; stir in sugar and corn syrup. Bring to a boil over medium heat; boil 2 minutes.

Step 3

Pour butter mixture over cereal mixture, and stir quickly to coat. Spread in a single layer on a lightly greased aluminum foil-lined jelly-roll pan.

Step 4

Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Transfer to wax paper, and cool completely (about 10 minutes). Break into pieces, and toss with pretzel sticks and chocolate pieces.

I have made this exactly, and also with some modifications. Both turned out great! I did used 2 cups of honey roasted peanuts, because pecans are ridiculously expensive and I prefer peanuts. I added the pretzels in with the nuts and graham cereal, before pouring the syrup mixture over. I found 1 1/2 the normal amount of syrup was too much. So I used 1/2 cup of butter plus 2 tablespoons, 1 1/4 cup of brown sugar and slightly more than 1/3 cup corn syrup. Came out perfectly!

My family loves this. I made a few modifications, I rated 4 stars because I felt the modifications were needed. I subbed 2 cups of honey roasted peanuts for the 1 cup of peanuts/1 cup of pecans because the honey roasted peanuts come in 2cup jars. I added more pretzels and broke them up a bit. I multiplied the caramel mixture by 1 1/2 and added the pretzels to the cereal and nuts when baking. We used pretzel M&M's. Simply outstanding. Second batch in a week.

Had this at a football party and it was a hit with the entire group! Easy and prefect for tailgating.
