Sweet Chex Mix

Do you have any candy left from the Easter Bunny?  Wondering what to do with all those M&M's? You could just eat them of course, OR, you could add more sugar and butter and yumminess to them to make them even better!!  This was always my family's Sunday night treat growing up, when we would all gather together to watch America's Funniest Home Videos.  You know, family bonding whilst laughing at people falling down.  Classic.

This Chex mix is always a hit, be it with your own family or at a party.  I've never seen any left over!!

Chex Mix:
about 9 C. cereal (I use Chex and Golden Grahams)
1 C.  Coconut
1 C.  Slivered Almonds
M&M's  (to taste)
1 C.  Karo Syrup
1 C.  Sugar
2/3 C. Butter

In a large bowl, combine cereal, coconut, almonds, and M&M's. 
In a saucepan, bring Karo syrup, sugar, and butter to a boil for 2 minutes.  Pour over cereal mixture and stir well.  Spread out on a cookie sheet covered in wax paper and allow to cool.  Eat.  Then eat some more because you can't stop!
