Campfire Chex Mix

Campfire Chex Mix is a sweet treat for the whole family.

For this you will need:

1 box (8 cups) Cinnamon Chex Cereal
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
6 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons light corn syrup
8 oz. Mini Peanut Butter Cups
1 cup Mini Marshmellows
1/2 cup Caramel Candies
1 tablespoon heavy cream
Chocolate Syrup (the recipe called for chocolate and vanilla chips as pictured, but my first batch proved that they don’t melt well enough to drizzle, so I substituted chocolate syrup on my second batch and it worked great!)

Line a cookie sheet pan with waxed paper and set aside.
