Almond Snack Mix

Is it just me or did Christmas totally sneak up on us this year?? I am usually so prepared, but this year I feel like there is no way I am going to be able to fit everything in before Santa arrives. With just a few short weeks until Christmas, plus 4 birthdays this month, I feel like I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off.

I am REALLY tempted to just forget it all and park my buns on the couch with a holiday movie and a big bowl of this snack mix. I am going to warn you though: this stuff is addictive. You will eat a handful and before you know it you’ve blacked out and eaten it ALL in one sitting. Its good. Real good. You’ve been warned.

Almond Snack Mix

Ingredients

  • 1 package (17.6 ounces) Rice Chex
  • 2 3/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract

Instructions

  • Place cereal and almonds in a large bowl; set aside. In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup and butter. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until a candy thermometer reads 250° to 266° (hard-ball stage).
  • Remove from the heat; stir in extract. Pour over cereal mixture; mix well. Spread onto waxed paper-lined baking sheets; cool. Toss to break apart. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 5 quarts.
