Sweet Snack Mix

Tempt your troops with a twist on caramel corn, sent by Dee Georgiou of Omaha, Nebraska. “When I set out this nutty snack, the bowl empties fast,” Dee says.

14 C Popped popcorn
3 C Crisp rice cereal
2 C Salted peanuts
1 lb White confectionery coating*
3 tbsp Creamy peanut butter

1. In a large bowl, combine popcorn, cereal and peanuts.
2. In the top of a double boiler over simmering water, melt coating and peanut butter, stirring occasionally. Pour over popcorn mixture; stir to coat.
2. Spread evenly on waxed paper. Allow to set for at least 2 hours. Store in airtight container.

Yield: 5-6 quarts.

*Editor’s Note: White confectionery coating is found in the baking section of most grocery stores. It is sometimes labelled “almond bark” or “candy coating” and is often sold in bulk packages of 1 to 1 – 1/2 pounds.
