When I was 19 my Grandma died. My sweet cousin Pam had this recipe that my grandma had written down and given to her. Pam decided to make a copy of the recipe and laminate it for all of our cousins so that we all had something from my grandma. It was so sweet of her and it is the only thing I have of my grandma’s.
We have movie night at our house every Friday. This and the caramel popcorn recipe, I will be posting soon, are popular choices for my kids. Once you start eating it, it’s very hard to stop.
1 cup sugar
1 cup Karo syrup
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 box (12 oz box) Rice Chex
1/2 box (12 oz box) Golden Grahams
1/2 package sliced almonds and/or coconuts (optional)
Pour both of the cereals into a large bowl. Then melt butter in a small pan. Once butter is melted add syrup and sugar. Cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring often. I like to make sure that there are no sugar crystals on the spoon when I lift the spoon up. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Pour syrup over cereal and continue to stir for several minutes, so the syrup does not pool on the bottom of the bowl. If you add almonds or coconuts add them soon after the syrup is added, then it will combine with the Chex well.
