1 12.8-ounce box Rice Chex cereal

 

 1 12-ponce box Golden
Grahams cereal

 

 1 7-ounce bag
shredded coconut

 

 1 4-ounce bag
slivered almonds

 

 1 1/2 cups butter
(3…yes 3…sticks of butter)

 

 2 cups sugar

 

 2 cups corn syrup

 

 

 

Combine Rice Chex and Golden Grahams, coconut and almonds in
a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine.

 

 In a large sauce pan,
cook butter, sugar and corn syrup to the “soft ball” stage…about
234 degrees on a candy thermometer. Pour over cereal mixture and stir until all
is well coated. Pour mixture out onto 2 large cookie sheets to cool. Stir it
around occasionally to prevent clumping. Store in an airtight container.
