TAILGATE CHEX MIX
6 cups honey graham cereal
1 cup honey-roasted peanuts
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
1/2 cup butter
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
2 cups pretzel sticks
1 cup candy-coated chocolate pieces
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine cereal and next 2 ingredients in a very large bowl.
Melt butter in a 3-qt. saucepan over medium-low heat; stir in sugar and corn syrup. Bring to a boil over medium heat; boil 2 minutes.
Pour butter mixture over cereal mixture, and stir quickly to coat. Spread in a single layer on a lightly greased aluminum foil-lined jelly-roll pan.
Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Transfer to wax paper, and cool completely (about 10 minutes). Break into pieces, and toss with pretzel sticks and chocolate pieces.
