Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoon butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 6 cups toasted chocolate corn cereal
  • 2 cups toasted corn cereal
  • 18 pieces unwrapped caramels
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon milk
  • 2 cups coconut toasted
  • 1 cup dark melting chocolate
  • 4 Almond SNICKERS Bars chopped
  • ┬╝ teaspoon coarse sea salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet or sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large microwavable bowl add cereal & set aside.
  • In small microwavable bowl add in brown sugar, butter and corn syrup. Microwave for 1 minute, then stir until smooth, then heat for another minute. Immediately stir in baking soda until it has complete dissolved.
  • Pour caramel mixture over cereal in the large bowl, mix until cereal is evenly coated. Place back in the microwave and heat for 1 minute, remove bowl and gently stir cereal once again, then reheat for another minute, remove from microwave and stir once more. 
  • Then spread the cereal mixture on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 5-8 minutes. Once you remove the mix from the oven immediately sprinkle with toasted coconut, set aside.
  • In a small microwavable bowl, add caramel pieces and milk, heat in the microwave for 1 minute, stir then heat again for another 30 seconds to a minute until caramel is completely melted and smooth. Use a spoon to drizzle caramel mixture over snack mix, toss the snack mix with the caramel so that the coconut sticks to the cereal. Top with chopped SNICKERS.
  • In a small microwavable bowl, heat the dark melting chocolate for 1 minute, stir and then reheat for another 30 seconds or until chocolate is completely smooth.
  • Using a spoon drizzle the chocolate over the snack mix, toss gently, to make sure SNICKERS and coconut are stuck to the cereal.
  •  Set aside and let it cool for 5-10 minutes, then break into pieces and serve.
