We are cooking with chef Angie Boedeker from Angelas Cafe in Denison. Today we are making a new twist on the traditional "Party mix."
5 cups small round tortilla chips
3 cups crispix cereal
1 bag (3.5 oz.) microwave popcorn, popped
1 can (12 oz.) mixed cocktail nuts (or 12 oz. pecans)
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 T. chili powder
1/4 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. cayenne pepper
Heat oven to 250 degrees. Combine chips, cereal, popcorn, and nuts in a large roasting pan. Put corn syrup, butter, brown sugar, chili powder, cinnamon and pepper in sauce pan and heat to boiling. Pour over mixture, stir with a wooden spoon to coat. Bake 1 hour, stirring every 20 minutes. Remove from oven and turn onto a sheet of wax paper or brown grocery bag to cool.
