Cheerios Mix 'o Goodness

My grandmother loved being in the kitchen. She loved taking care of people by feeding them. ( I see nothing wrong with that.)

Here is her recipe for a Cheerios snack mix that was a favorite of everyone's.  I made it to take with me this weekend to share with my sisters. 


  6 c. Cheerios
  1 c. raisins
  1 c. peanuts
  1/2 c. butter
  1 c. brown sugar
  1/4 c. corn syrup
  1/2 tsp. baking soda

Mix together Cheerios, raisins and peanuts. In a medium sized saucepan, mix butter, brown sugar and corn syrup. Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in 1/2 teaspoon baking soda. Pour the butter mixture over the Cheerios mixture and coat. Place in a jelly roll pan and bake at 250 degrees for 15 minutes. Cool. Break apart. Store in a sealed container.

Just in time to get added to my grocery list--unless you think there might possibly be some left? ha
