In Response to Help! Can't find recipe!:
I think this might be the recipe:
It's called Holiday Party Mix. I make it all the time.
9 cups corn cereal squares
4 cups popped popcorn
1 1/2 cups dry roasted peanuts
1 cup light brown sugar
1 stick margarine
1/2 cup light karo syrup
1 teasp. vanilla
1/2 teasp. baking soda
1 2/3 nestle swirled holiday morsels
1 pkg milk chocolate covered pretzels
preheat oven to 250. Grease large roasting pan.
Mix cereal, popped popcorn, peanuts in large bowl. Pour into prepared pan.
combine brown sugar, butter and corn syrup in medium, heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil without stirring for 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla and baking soda. Pour over cereal mixture; stir to coat evenly.
Bake for 45 miknutes, stirring every 15 minutes. cool completely in pan, stirring frequently to break apart mixture. Stir in morsels and pretzels. Store in airtight container.
I hope someone out there can help me. A number of years ago, Nestle used to have a special morsel mix at holiday times, with colored morsels mixed with the regular ones. On this site, there was a recipe for a snack mix using those morsels. It may have been made with popcorn - I really can't remember. I didn't print the recipe, and I can't find it on the site. I guess they probably pulled the recipe because they no longer sell the morsel mix. Does anyone have that recipe? I would be so grateful if I could get it again. This time, I would definitely print it!! Thanks!
