Expert Tips

One of my bosses at work brought in some Chicago blend popcorn (caramel popcorn mixed with cheese popcorn) and it was great. I thought of it when this contest came up and made up a Chex Mix based on it. If you like a lighter caramel, use the brown sugar. If you like a darker, heavier caramel, use the molasses. I like the variation in the flavor, so I withhold a cup of Cheez-Its and popcorn until after cooking, but if you want everything coated with caramel, throw it all in!

Directions

  • 1 Mix cereals, 1 cup of the cheese crackers and 2 cups of the popcorn in large, microwavable bowl. Set aside.
  • 2 Place butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and salt in 2-cup microwavable measuring cup. Microwave on High 1 minute 30 seconds. Stir; microwave on High until bubbling. Remove from microwave; stir in baking soda. Mixture will foam up, but keep mixing until baking soda is dissolved. Pour over the cereal mixture; stir until fully coated.
  • 3 Microwave on High 4 to 5 minutes, stirring after every minute. Spread on waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Let cool for about 5 minutes to let caramel fully harden. Stir in remaining 1 cup cheese crackers and 1 cup popcorn.
