Coconut Almond Chex Mix (Goblin Grub)

6 1/2 cups Rice Chex
4 1/2 cups Golden Grahams cereal (I left this out. But maybe next time I would try cinnamon Chex.) 
1 cup sliced almonds
2 cups coconut
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter - not margarine
1 cup sugar
1 cup light Karo syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla

Spread wax paper over counter tops or on table top. Spray with cooking spray.

Find a very large bowl and combine cereals, almonds, and coconut. Set aside.

In a soup sized kettle (seriously, you want a HUGE pot, or you will end up with sticky goo all over your stove top), combine butter, Karo Syrup, and sugar. Bring to a boil and then reduce and cook for about three minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Pour over cereal mixture and stir well until everything is well coated. Make sure to do this while the syrup mixture is still hot.

Spread onto wax paper and stir every 10-15 minutes until dry. Keep in an air tight container. I find a large baggies works well. Serve from a from a bowl or wrap into treat bags as gifts or pre-portioned servings.

Yummy! Enjoy!
