My kids ask me to make this every year, and I quadruple the recipe.. and I substitute ANY Nestle chips,, enjoy!!..Joanne


9 cups oven-toasted corn cereal squares
4 cups popped popcorn
1 1/2 cups dry-roasted peanuts
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 2/3 cups (10-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® SWIRLED™ Holiday Morsels
1 pkg. (7.5 oz.) milk chocolate-covered pretzels.AKA "Flips"...

PREHEAT oven to 250° F. Grease large roasting pan.

MIX cereal, popped popcorn and peanuts in large bowl. Pour into prepared pan.

COMBINE brown sugar, butter and corn syrup in medium, heavy-duty saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil, without stirring, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla extract and baking soda. Pour evenly over cereal mixture; stir to coat evenly.

BAKE for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool completely in pan, stirring frequently to break apart mixture. Stir in morsels and pretzels. Store in airtight container.

ran out of time to edit.. I also substitute Honey Roasted peanuts for the plain..too..:grin..YUMM..Joanne.


I make one with corn chex, cheerios, pretzels and red & green M&M's. It's then mixed with melted white chocolate. (You can add nuts too, but I don't)

I'm sure the hardest part about this recipe is waiting for it to cool completely before adding the chocolate so you can dive right in. It sounds yummy!
