Chocolate Chex Caramel Crunch

Chex comes through with yet another really yummy snack!  This is sure to become a favorite at your house.  That's why I always double this recipe.

8 cups Chocolate Chex cereal
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
6 Tbsp butter
3 Tbsp light corn syrup
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup white vanilla baking chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Measure Chex into a LARGE bowl.

Combine brown sugar, butter and corn syrup in a saucepan and heat over medium heat.  Stir until melted and smooth.  Once it begins to bubble, remove from heat and stir in baking soda until dissolved.  Pour over cereal, stirring until evenly coated.

Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.  Spread mixture on cookie sheets and bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.  Remove from the oven and cool for 20 minutes.  Break into bite size pieces.

Place vanilla baking chips in a microwavable bowl.  Microwave on High for about 1 minute, 30 seconds or until chips can be stirred smooth (bowl will be hot).  Drizzle over snack.  Refrigerate until set.  Store in tightly covered container.
