Trail Mix

I've been eating this stuff as long as I can remember. Although I haven't made it much the past few years, my mom would make this every once in a while growing up. The other day I was looking for a treat to make for our family night and I remembered this! It's so quick and easy to throw together and you probably have most of the ingredients on hand.

Not only is this a perfect snack for a family fun night, but it also makes a great little gift for a teacher or friend.

Trail Mix
5 cups Cheerios
5 cups Corn Chex
4 cups pretzel sticks
2 cups peanuts
1 1/2 cups butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups light Karo syrup

Mix first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. In a medium saucepan, bring to a boil butter sugar and Karo syrup. Boil for for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir down bubbles. Pour over dry mix and stir to combine. Pour onto a cookie sheet after mixed to cool. Store in an airtight container.
