Irresistible snacks!

Irresistible snacks for 22 kids

Crispy, sweet and salty mix perfect for the Girl Scout troop!

4 quarts popped popcorn (Add kernels once the corn oil is hot.  Cook on medium and salt when kernels begin to pop).
The entire box of Rice Chex
Half a bag of square pretzels
12 ounces of M & M’s
8 cups of Quaker Oat Cereal
2 cups brown sugar
1.5 cups corn syrup
Half a cup of butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda

Grease 3 pans.  In a few large bowls mix popcorn, cereals, M & M’s & pretzels.  In a large saucepan, mix brown sugar, corn syrup and butter. Bring to a boil for 8 minutes and stir about 6 times.  Remove from the stove and immediately stir in the vanilla, cinnamon and baking soda until it begins to foam (about a minute).  Pour over the popcorn mixture and bake uncovered at 280 degrees for 1 hour.  Stir every 15 minutes and rotate pans each time.  Cool completely & break apart for serving.
