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.

  1. Made this last night to take on a road trip. Holy sweetness!! My kids loved the few bites that they sampled. I will definitely be making this one again.

    1. Hello, I haven’t made this yet because I have a question, should the sugar mixture be boiled to a specific temperature? Thank you for your help with this question. It looks amazing by the way.

      1. I don’t have a specific temperature for the sugar mixture. Just heat it until it boils.

    1. I’ve never tried it with margarine so I can not say. My guess is that it would be fine, but I’m not 100% sure.

  2. When you said you got salted pecans at Walmart. Are they Planters roasted pecan halves? That’s the only one I see at Walmart.

  3. Can a microwave be used instead of the oven like with chex mix? After mixing then put in the microwave for two minutes, stir and repeat two more times?

    1. What is Crispix cereal? Is that like the cereal used for Chex mix? If so which one is used? There is rice & corn.

    1. I think it is mandatory. It is the main ingredient in the caramel sauce. BUT you can make it however you want.

      1. I have frozen the original Chex mix, I use vegetable oil instead of butter in original recipe as butter may go rancid.

      2. It can last a long time in a “Tupperware” type container. (as long as you hide it or it will be gone!) If it sticks together, just kind of break apart.

      1. How much honey did you use? I wanted to make for my child but can’t have corn syrup. Thanks

      1. I’m using plain shelled pecan halves. How can I incorporate salt in this recipe? Looking forward making this!

    1. Love this recipe! My daughter’s favorite snack. After I take it out of the oven I sprinkled a little coarse sea salt I er it. Couldn’t find salted pecans

  4. This stuff is off the chart!!! I used mixed nuts in place of the pecans due to the $$$ of pecans. After removing from the oven to cool, I sprinkled with a good amount of Himalayan pink sea salt! AWESOME! We darn near ate the whole batch in one sitting! Making again…and again…and again…well, you get the idea!

    1. I added Golden Grahams cereal and pretzel pieces. While it cooled I sprinkled chocolate chips on top to melt. This was the bomb! Soooo addictive.

  5. I love this recipe. It is totally additive. Do you have any tips for it not sticking to the baking sheet so bad? I spray it but it still sticks pretty bad.

      1. I added 2T of bourbon to the liquid after it comes off the heat (we used Knob Creek but Makers Mark would work too). I popped it back on the heat to let the baking soda froth a little more and continued as directed. OMG soooooo good!!!

    1. So good! When a friend brought this to work we are it all before lunch!!! I made it today but didn’t have pecans so I used slivered almonds and it was just as yummy!!!
