Cereal Almond Snack Recipe (sinfully delicious!)

Cereal "Almond" Snack

With Ms. Little Bubbles on winter break, I’m taking a break from bento making and have shifted focus to simple and easy baking.  🙂  Ms. Little Bubbles has a few friends in the neighborhood and I wanted to make them a tasty treat.  My sister-in-law raved about the “Cereal Almond Snack” that our aunt made for her.  Unfortunately, I’m allergic to almonds and my version turned into “Cereal, Cereal and More Cereal Snack”.  It’s a nice change up from the typical Chex Mix cereal snack.  Here’s my version of cereal snack goodness (and it’s addictively good!)

Cereal (Almond) Snack

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Cherrios Cereal
  • 2 cup Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal
  • 2 cups Rice Krispie Cereal (I added this to the original recipe)
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1 cup sliced almonds (I took this out due to my allergy)
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup real maple or maple-flavored syrup

Directions

  • Heat oven to 300 F. Line one large (17×14 inch) cookie sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.  In a large bowl, mix all the cereal, oats and almonds together. Set aside.
  • In a 1-quart saucepan, heat butter, brown sugar and syrup over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the butter is melted.  Pour over the cereal mixture and stir until well coated.  Spread the mixture evenly on the foil lined cookie sheet with a rubber spatula until it’s about 1/2 inch thick.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the almonds are golden brown.  Cool completely (about 15 minutes).  Break into pieces with fingers and store tightly in a covered container.

    I do love Christmas bc of the Christ significance of it…but I’ve never had a family Christmas tradition. I don’t have any family traditions because we’ve always been an immigrant family and thus no relatives. But I love hearing (reading) about other family’s traditions…esp if it is surrounding food like yours!
