Introduction: Midnight Crunch Snack Mix

About: I am a blogger, photographer, crafter, retired teacher, yoga instructor.

Do you ever crave something crunchy late at night? or when you are in the car, or walking the dog? I love something crunchy late at night. I heard this recipe on a audible book I am listening to. The series is the Hannah Swensen Mysteries by Joanna Fluke. The book is a series about a baker that seems to find a lot of mysteries to solve. She includes the recipes for the goodies she talks about at the end of almost each chapter. I heard this in the book - Devil's Food Cake Murder. The recipe is called "Imperial Cereal" in the book. I changed it a little for my family's tastes and the ingredients that I had.

Step 1: Ingredients

9 cups cereal (any cereal, I used Cheerios)

1/2 cups peanuts (any kind of nuts or combo to taste)

1/4 cup (1/2 stick salted butter)

1/4 cup orange juice concentrate (thawed)

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup craisins

Butter Flavored Pam

Preheat oven 300 degrees

Lightly spray a large cookie sheet with Pam

Spread the cereal and nuts on the cookies sheet

In a microwave safe dish melt the butter and stir in brown sugar, when butter is completely melted stir in thawed orange juice. Drizzle over the cereal-nut mix and stir to cover all of the mix.

Step 2: Cook for 15 Minutes

Take out of the oven

Sprinkle the craisins over the mix

Stir, and let cool

Store in air tight container. I don't knowhow long it will last. I eat it all.

Step 3: Enjoy!
