What you need

3 pkg (68 g each) ROLO® Peanut Butter, chopped
6 cups (1.5 l) puffed corn cereal squares
6 cups (1.5 l) small pretzel twists
2 cups (500 ml) roasted unsalted peanuts
1 cup (250 ml) butter
1 cup (250 ml) brown sugar
1/3 cup (75 ml) corn syrup
1 tsp (5 ml) baking soda
3/4 tsp (4 ml) ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp (2 ml) flaked sea salt (optional)

How to prepare

Instructions

Preheat oven to 300°F (150°C). Toss together cereal, pretzels and peanuts. Spread onto large rimmed baking sheet. Set aside.

Combine butter, sugar and corn syrup in a heavy-bottom saucepan set over medium heat. Bring to a boil. Cook, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes. Remove from heat; while wearing oven mitts, stir in baking soda (mixture will bubble vigorously). Stir in cinnamon.

Pour caramel over cereal mixture; stir to coat evenly. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden.

Remove from oven and immediately scatter ROLO® Peanut Butter over top and sprinkle with salt, if using. Cool completely. Break into clusters.

Tips

Storage

Store in an airtight container, at room temperature, for up to 2 weeks.

Spice it Up

For snack mix with a bit of a kick, omit cinnamon and stir 1 tsp (5 mL) Louisiana-style hot sauce into caramel.
