Payday Chex Mix

I am bringing out this Champion Beginner Microwave cooking recipe Macie exhibited at the 2014 Jasper County Fair.  Payday Chex Mix is a fast snack to make for kid's lunches or for the husband to throw in his lunchbox to snack on while spending time in the tractor this fall.

Harvest is going by so fast.  There have been no rain delays yet.  I haven't had much time to spend in the kitchen.  Most time in the kitchen is spent at the kitchen in the office.  Meals at home are far and few between. Last weekend Ryan spent some time with his dad in the field.

A snack like payday is enjoyed by everyone in the house, and simple enough the kids love helping make, and lick the bowls!

Payday Chex Mix
6 cup Chex Rice Cereal
1 cup Peanut Butter
1 cup Light Corn Syrup
1 cup Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
1 cup Peanuts (optional)

Mix 1 cup Light Corn Syrup and 1 cup Sugar in microwave safe bowl.  Microwave for 3 minutes.  Stir. Microwave for another 1.5 minutes.  Stir.   Add 1 cup Peanut Butter and 1 tsp Vanilla. Add peanuts if desired.  Pour over Chex Rice Cereal. Mix carefully, make sure cereal is completely covered.  Pour over wax paper to cool.  Cut into small pieces or tear off and enjoy!
