Each year for Christmas my husband's boss shares a super yummy snack mix. This year, after picking out the pieces with gluten, I asked his wife for the recipe so I could make it and not have to eat it so tediously. Well, that was a mistake because I ate it WAY too quickly! The second time I made it, I added more dry ingredients, just to make it not quite so sweet. So here is the adapted version. Note that the original recipe had Cheerios and multiple Chex flavors.
12-15 cups popped popcorn
5 cups Corn Chex
1 can peanuts/mixed nuts
2 sticks butter
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
In large roaster pan, mix together popcorn, cereal, and nuts.
Bring butter, brown sugar, and salt to a boil.
Add baking soda; stir well.
Pour over dry mix and stir.
Bake for one hour at 250 degrees, stirring every 15 minutes or so.
After it has cooled, you can add M&M's for more sweetness (and color).
If I have labeled a recipe as GlutenFree
or Dairy Free but it appears to have those ingredients in it... that
means the recipe is still delicious with substitutes/replacements. Ex:
soy milk, lactose-free cheese, Bragg's liquid aminos (for soy sauce),
all-purpose gluten free flour (Better Batter is my favorite), etc.
Please check your individual ingredients to be sure they are GF or DF,
if that is what you need.
