This is one of those recipes that everyone asks for. It never fails, Birthdays, Superbowl Parties, even fishing with my husband, no matter where I take Caramel Chex, people rave about it! Besides its extreme yumminess, there are several reasons I love this recipe. First, it doesn’t require too many ingredients, and most of them I usually have on hand – as long as I remember the two brown paper bags from the grocer’s checkout. With this in mind, I always ask the checker for four bags, that way I always have two secretly tucked away just incase. Second, you end up with a ginormous (gigantic plus enormous) mountain of Caramel Chex, which is a good thing because it never ever lasts long. And , it is so easy to wrap up and give as gifts (which everyone seems to love). In fact, some of my husband's colleagues put in special birthday treat requests. Trust me, you will want to try these!
Cover table or counter top with wax paper. Spray with non-stick cooking spray. Bring the first three ingredients to a boil on the stove in a large kettle, stir frequently as not to burn.
However, you should be able to dump the Chex onto the sprayed wax paper.
This is usually the time that the nibbling begins. I always have little, and even big fingers sneaking tastes and hear lots of “uhmmmms” and once in a while “this is the bestest snack ever, huh,” from my little ones. Not to worry, even with the nibbling, there's plenty!
