It’s crazy how fast these disappear after I make them



13 cups Crispix cereal

1 cup butter

2 cups brown sugar

1/4 cup light corn syrup

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Optional: 1 cup chopped nuts or pretzel sticks for some crunch


Prepare a large baking sheet, either by greasing it or using parchment paper.

Using a tall saucepan, melt the butter. Once melted, stir in brown sugar and keep stirring as it comes to a boil.

Mix in the vanilla extract and corn syrup, then bring it back to a boil, ensuring you stir all the while.

Stir in the baking soda next. Be cautious as this will make the mixture foam up.

Now's the fun part - toss in the Crispix cereal (and optional nuts or pretzels, if you're using them) into this gooey caramel mix. Gently ensure every piece gets its share of the caramel goodness.

Empty out the caramel-clad cereal onto your prepped baking sheet. Spread it uniformly and then allow it to cool down. Once cooled, you can store them in an airtight container.

Don't just keep this treat to yourself. Call over some pals or family and bask in the joy that this Caramel Crispix brings. Trust me, not only will it be a treat for your taste buds, but also a beautiful moment to add to your bank of memories. Enjoy!
