Last Minute Holiday Treat

Have you had ideas of grand desserts that you would pass out with your handmade cards, wrapped with ribbon and glitter. Well me too, but the fact is you have run out of time! Let's make something yummy that is quick and cute and will still make you look impressive. Here it is:

Celestial Chex Mix (my way)

3/4 c butter
1 c white kayro
1 c sugar
4 c rice chex
4 c corn chex
4 c cinnamon chex
2 c shredded coconut
1-2 c sliced almonds

First you are going to want to toast about a third of the coconut and ALL of the almonds, (to toast spread out on a foil covered cookie sheet and broil for a minute or two. TIP: do NOT do anything in between putting them in and taking the out! They will burn!) Then in a large bowl combine cereals, coconut and almonds. Next in saucepan combine butter, sugar and kayro. Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes stir constantly. Pour over cereal mixture, coat and mix. Last spread on wax paper till slightly dry to touch, separate into bite-sized clusters.

It goes together fast and it is SO yummy, now all you need are some cute bags. Staple a paper with your name on it and TA-DA! I thought it would be a good thing to make and have at home so that when those unexpected friends come with a treat, you have one to give them!
