Natalie's Killer Chex Mix!

Seriously, this is the killer treat of all time! I only wish that I could say that it's fat free but with a pound of butter, I'm thinking not. Oh well. Life's too short not to spurge on the diet end every once and a while!

For a huge huge batch.

1 small box of Rice Chex

1 small box corn Chex

3 cups coconut

2 cups cashews or slivered almonds

1 cup craisins (optional)

In a large saucepan, melt:

1 pound butter

2 cups Karo syrup

2 cups sugar.

Bring to a rolling boil and let it continue to boil for three minutes. Remove from heat and add:

2 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. baking soda

Pour over the chex mix. Toss and mix really well. Store in sealed container after completely cooled. (This fills the big Tupperware Fix and Mix Bowl.) Walk or swim five extra miles today and tomorrow and the rest of the week even though it was gone the first day! Enjoy!
