This Praline Crunch should come with a warning label! It is HIGHLY addictive!! We could not stop eating this. We both had zero self-control around this yummy Praline Crunch. Sweet and salty goodness in every bite!

This snack mix is very easy to make. Combine Crispix cereal and pecans in a giant bowl. In a saucepan, combine corn syrup, brown sugar, and butter. Bring the mixture to a boil, then stir in vanilla and baking soda. Pour over the cereal and pecans. Spread the coated cereal mixture on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for an hour. Remove the snack mix from the oven and spread out on some parchment paper and cool.

This recipe makes a ton, so there is plenty for sharing (if you make yourself share). This can be made ahead of time and stored in an air-tight container. I am making a batch to take home for Thanksgiving. It is perfect for snacking and watching football games! It would also be great as a homemade holiday gift.

  • ½ tsp baking soda

Comments

  1. Can you substitute Life Cereal for the Crispix? It says that it contains oat flour, corn flour and rice flour.

  2. You said to use a rimmed baking sheet in the first description but then you mentioned using a 13×9 pan on the second description. Does it matter?

  3. The instructions just say to cook syrup and sugar no mention of how long or does it get to a soft ball stage or brittle? Or what is candy temperature? I’m afraid I cooked mine too long and wasn’t able to completely mix ingredients. Also this amount barely fit into a 13 x 9 inch pan. Not sure how I’ll stir it.

  4. My family loves these and they are addicted. I make several batches. My grandson does not like nuts so I make a plain batch for him.

  5. Love this recipe but I make a few additions. I add a couple of handfuls of bite size tortilla chips, a cup of Craisins and a teaspoon or more cayenne pepper. It’s sweet, salty and has a little kick. The amount of cayenne pepper is up to you but this is truly delicious.
