Candy Chex Mix

This is the most sinfully delicious snack EVER! My hubby has been craving this one for a few months and so since we're having some friends over to play games tonight, I thought I'd make this one to share. Otherwise, we'll eat the whole thing ourselves this weekend and then I'll feel unjustified in complaining about these last 15 pounds that need to come off. It's so chewy and soft and has enough of that sticky goodness. A good friend of ours made this for a road trip while we were dating and we begged him for his mom's coveted recipe and so here it is:
Candy Chex Mix
1 C. granulated sugar
1 C. light corn syrup
1 1/2 cubes butter
1 tsp vanilla
Stir and boil first three ingredients until dissolved. Add the vanilla. Mix together 1 large box of Crispix, 1/4-1/2 box of Corn or Rice chex in a big bowl. Add desired nuts (you could add anything you like...peanuts, M&Ms, raisins, etc...we just like cereal and coconut) and coconut. Mix with sauce. And try to stop yourself from eating more than a dozen handfuls!
I usually add about 1/2 package of coconut. My hubby isn't a huge coconut fan and he still loves it in this--it gives it more of that ooey gooey softness with the slight crunch of the cereal.
