Awesome Holiday Chex Mix

I have a recipe I want to share.  This stuff is crazy addicting.  I could eat the entire container in one sitting.  So, so yummy!

Holiday Chex Mix


9 cups Corn Chex cereal
4 cups popped popcorn
1 1/2 cups dry-roasted peanuts
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 2/3 cups (10-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® SWIRLED™ Holiday Morsels
1 pkg. (7.5 oz.) milk chocolate-covered pretzels.

PREHEAT oven to 250° F. Grease large roasting pan.

MIX cereal, popped popcorn and peanuts in large bowl. Pour into prepared pan.

COMBINE brown sugar, butter and corn syrup in medium, heavy-duty saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil, without stirring, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla extract and baking soda. Pour evenly over cereal mixture; stir to coat evenly.

BAKE for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool completely in pan, stirring frequently to break apart mixture. Stir in morsels and pretzels. Store in airtight container.

NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE SWIRLED Holiday Morsels are only available to purchase October through December.

I suppose you could make this any time of the year if you substitute the holiday morsels with plain white chocolate chips…  But I’m warning you, it’s dangerously good!  Don’t blame me if you eat the entire batch and gain a few pounds…
