I love dessert and I can’t help but want a treat on Sunday afternoon. I love to try new recipes and thus Cereal Treat Sunday is born. I have so many cereal treats that I love. Maybe it is the crunch, maybe it is the ease of which they are prepared, but cereal treats are a favorite in our household. Each Sunday for the next well, while, until I run out of fantastic cereal recipes to share I will post on Sunday afternoon to give you a fun new treat to try with your family.
Let’s start with a recipe that came from my mother in law. This one lives up to it’s name. Truly, try to make a batch and just have one handful. Impossible!!
- 2 1/2 Cups Butter
- 2 Cups Lite Corn Syrup
- 2 Cups Sugar
- 17 oz box Corn Chex
- 1 box Golden Grahams
- 1/2 box Kix
- 1-2 Cups Sliced Almonds
- 1-2 Cups Coconut Ribbon
(this recipe makes a huge batch, I half it quite often)
In large saucepan melt butter, then add corn syrup, then add sugar. Bring to a boil and boil 2-3 minutes. (stir until dissolved and then let it heat up without stirring)
Mix dry ingredients in a giant bowl. Pour liquid over and mix well. Lay in a thin layer on wax paper and allow to dry. You may want to let it dry overnight before putting it in Ziplocs otherwise it will be really sticky.
If you have a favorite cereal treat, please, please leave a link in the comments or send the recipe to me by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and maybe you will get featured.
