Sinful Snack Mix

I have made this extremely addictive yummy snack mix for parties, and girly get-togethers. This recipe gets devoured, and I always think I'm making too much. I love that it has graham crackers, and coconut. The combination of flavors is awesome...but just to warn you...it is not the healthiest snack to have around. But, sometimes the most TDF recipes are the most decadent...hence the use of BUTTER! So the next time you want to make a sweet treat for a party or just for you and your family, try this one out...you will DIE!

Sinful Snack Mix

7 c. Golden Grahams
7 c. Rice Chex
1 c. shredded coconut
1 c. light Karo Syrup
1 c. sugar
1 c. butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. chopped, toasted almonds (I used dry roasted, no salt almonds)

Melt syrup, sugar and butter in a medium sauce pan. Bring to boil, and boil for 4 1/2 minutes. Take off heat, add vanilla. Pour over cereal, coconut, and nuts, stir to coat evenly. Lay mixture out on foil to let cool. Note: the consistency of mine always turns out like soft caramel, if you like it crispier, cook a few more minutes.

I make this recipe only with one difference...i add marshmellows and melt them in the mixture...it make it a little stickier and gooyer...but oh so yummy!

Marshmelloes sound like a really good addition!
