Caramel Crunch--Tasty Thursday

Happy Tasty Thursday!  This snack is brought to you by my mom.  I have to warn you that this sweet cereal snack will hook you.  You'll walk by and grab a handful....and another....and another...and...why not one more.  It's that good.

Caramel Crunch

4 cups honey nut Chex
4 cups chocolate Cheerios
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
6 TBSP butter
3 TBSP light corn syrup
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup white vanilla baking chips

Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.  Pour cereal into a large microwave safe bowl; set aside.

In 2-cup microwavable measuring cup, microwave brown sugar, butter and corn syrup uncovered on high 1 to 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute, until melted and smooth.  Stir in baking soda until dissolved.  Pour over cereal, stirring until evenly coated.  Microwave on high 3 minutes, stirring every minute.  Spread on cookie sheet.  Cool 10 minutes.  Break into bite-size pieces.

In a small microwavable bowl, microwave vanilla baking chips uncovered on high about 1 minute 30 seconds or until chips can be stirred smooth (bowl will be hot).  Drizzle on snack.  Refrigerate until set. Store in tightly covered container.
