Ingredients for Caramel Crispix

  • Crispix Cereal
  • Butter
  • Brown Sugar
  • Lite Karo Syrup
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Baking Soda

How to Make Caramel Crispix

  • Start off with lining a baking sheet with either wax paper or parchment paper. If you go with parchment paper I recommend spraying it with non-stick cooking spray to keep from sticking.
  • Next, you’ll melt the butter over the stove and add the brown sugar. Bring it to a boil to fully dissolve the brown sugar, then add in the rest of the ingredients.

  • Once the baking soda is added, it will become foamy and increase the volume of the sauce.
  • Pour your caramel mixture over your cereal and stir to coat evenly.

  • Pour it into the prepared pan and spread it into a thin layer to cool.
  • I recommend stirring again after a few minutes to keep it from clumping. Be careful not to stir too much or too vigorously because the cereal will start crumbling.

It cools rather quickly. You’ll be able to package it up in no time (or start eating it!)
