Candy Cereal

I'm addicted to this stuff. I made it last year after Laura from Real Mom's Kitchen posted it and loved it. This year I actually took a picture before I started eating it so I have a picture to share. I used different cereal then Laura did mainly because I wanted to use up some cereal we had on hand. As long as you use the same amount of cereal called for in her recipe you can use any type you have on hand.

Candy Cereal
Laura from Real Mom Kitchen

5 cups Cheerios
5 cups Rice Chex
6 cups Special K

Measure these out into a large bowl. I have a big Tupperware bowl that I use. Then in a large sauce pan put:

2 cups sugar
3/4 cup white corn syrup
1 cube (or stick) of butter (It’s gotta be the real stuff)
1 dash salt

Stir constantly and bring to a boil. Then add:

1 cup whipping cream

Now use you candy thermometer and cook to soft ball stage, stirring constantly. Once at soft ball stage, remove immediately from the heat and add:

1 tsp. vanilla

Stir in vanilla and pour over your cereal. The gently toss and coat the cereal. Once all coated, pour out on the large cookie sheet to cool. Then enjoy!
