Sweet & Salty Party Mix!


Another recipe I made for our party was one from Pampered Chef's new catalog... It was a HUGE hit and sooo easy!!! Here's the recipe!

1 pkg. microwave pop corn (90-100g) popped
3 cups miniature pretzel twists
2 cups dry-roasted salted peanuts
2 cups crisp rice and corn (Crispix or Chex)
1 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup corn syrup
1 tsp. baking soda

1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Prepare popcorn according to package directions. In a large mixing bowl combine popcorn, peanuts, pretzels and cereal. Set aside. Combine butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup in a saucepan. Cook and stir with a wooden spoon over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil. Continue to cook without stirring for 3 minutes. Remove from heat, carefully stir in baking soda.

2. Pour caramel sauce over popcorn mixture; stir until evenly coated. Spoon onto a cookie sheet and bake 30 minutes. Remove from oven.

3. Transfer popcorn mixture to large piece of parchment paper. Cool completely, breaking mixture into clusters as it cools. Pour into serving bowl.
