All right, so I had previously posted this recipe under the name Sweetheart Crunch. I had originally found the recipe at Jeanette Lynton's website and that's what she had called it. However, I couldn't stand the name so I pulled the post. A bit lame? Maybe. But really, what a totally dorky name for a snack recipe! Especially when guys probably wouldn't even touch the stuff. I can so hear Marty now...."Oh, so it's girly food." Anyway, chic food or not, I pulled the post thinking it most definitely needed a better name. If only I could think of one......
Oddly enough, just when I was about to say screw it and repost the recipe with the Sweetheart Crunch name, I had the same recipe emailed to me, from someone totally unrelated to Jeanette Lynton, with a better name~ Addiction. It even came with a picture! (it just looks addicting doesn't it?!) So alas, I am reposting. I guess some things are just meant to be posted!
1 large box Corn Chex
1 large box Golden Grahams
1 bag of coconut
2-3 cups slivered Almonds
red hots, optional
2 cups Karo Syrup
1 1/2 cups butter
2 cups sugar
In saucepan combine Karo Syrup, butter and sugar and heat to boiling. Let boil 4 minutes. Meanwhile, combine dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside. When syrup is ready, carefully pour over the dry ingredients. Toss till well coated then evenly spread out on wax or parchmant paper to cool.
And yes, I knew this post would be published! You're always going to question that now, aren't you?!
