No your eyes did not deceive you. This is a party mix that you do, in fact, make in the microwave.
It may be the easiest most delicious snack you ever make.
My “aunt” used to make this party mix all the time and we would DEVOUR it. She gave me the recipe for my bridal shower (over 2 years ago) and I forgot I had it. This past weekend I found it and after reading it over I decided I HAD to make it.
Needless to say, I have devoured almost the entire thing by myself (thanks for the little help Janelle).
I am the person who pins tons of recipes on Pinterest and never ends up making them because I read the recipe and decide I am too lazy to do it. So trust me when I say this is so so easy.
This is a great little snack to have on hand with the holiday season coming up!
1 stick margarine
1 Cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white corn syrup
sprinkle of salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1 box Crispix cereal
1 bag pretzels
1 bag M&Ms
Brown paper bag
Combine margarine, brown sugar, white corn syrup, and salt in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Stir and cook 2 more minutes.
Add vanilla and baking soda. Stir and pour over mixture of pretzels and Crispix. Put in brown paper bag and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes on high. Remove, shake the bag, and repeat.
Cool in a big bowl. Finger through as it is cooling to keep the pretzels and cereal from clumping together.
When cooled, add M&Ms
