I make this at Christmas time instead of Chex mix.


6 c. mini pretzels
6 c. Crispex cereal
1 c. roasted peanuts
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. light corn syrup
1 t. vanilla
1/2 t. baking soda

Combine pretzels, Crispex and peanuts in 4 quart bowl; mix lightly. Combine brown sugar, butter and syrup in 2 quart glass bowl. In microwave, cook on HIGH uncovered 3 - 3 1/2 minutes, until it boils, stirring once. Then on LOW for 4 minutes. Stir in vanilla and baking soda. Pour over mixture. Toss to coat. Cook on HIGH 4 1/2 - 5 minutes, until lightly toasted, stirring twice. Spoon onto waxed paper to cool, break up larger pieces. Store in tightly covered containers.
