Making this snack mix requires small work. There’s plenty to go around because this recipe yields a huge amount. Make it ahead of time and store it in an airtight jar for later use. I’m preparing a big batch to take to my family’s Thanksgiving dinner. This snack is also ideal for munching on while watching the game. If you’re looking for a homemade present for the holidays, this is perfect.

Ingredients

2 c. pecan halves (I use salted)

8 c. Crispix cereal

½ c. brown sugar, packed

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ c. corn syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

½ c. butter

HOW TO MAKE PRALINE CRUNCH

Step 1: Prepare the oven and preheat it to 250 degrees F.

Step 2: In a large bowl, mix the cereal and pecans.

Step 3: Whisk the brown sugar, corn syrup, and butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring often. Then, take the pan off the heat. While off the heat, stir in the vanilla and baking soda.

Step 4: Pour the mixture over the cereal mixture, tossing well until the cereal and pecans are evenly coated.

Step 5: Into a 9 x 13-inch pan, pour the cereal mixture. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 1 hour, stirring once every 20 minutes.

Step 6: Remove from the oven when done and allow to cool. Once cooled, pour the praline onto wax or parchment paper, then break it into pieces.

Note:

Since the mixture will bubble up when adding the baking soda, make sure to use a large saucepan when making the brown sugar/corn syrup mixture.
