I've created a few addicts out there... Just like my father created addicts out of me and my family.
I even had someone else's derby wife saying she *might* be coerced into leaving her wife for me if I would hook her up with a supply of my Golden Crack.
Miss Noteworthy keeps telling me it's inappropriate to call it Golden Crack, but it's hard for almost anyone to walk by the bowl without getting another handful. I think it's funny, and we already know I'm not appropriate, so...
Here's your fix:
6 cups graham cereal (like Golden Grahams)
1 cup honey roasted peanuts
1 cup pecan pieces
2 cups pretzels (whatever shape you like)
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup light corn syrup (yeah,yeah... find your own substitute. It's a 1/4 cup to 10 cups of dry stuff.)
1 cup M&Ms (whatever variety you like... I've used both pretzel and peanut)
Preheat oven to 350. Cover large cookie pan with aluminum foil, and spray with non-stick spray.
Mix first four ingredients together in a huge bowl.
Melt the butter over medium-low heat. Stir in the brown sugar & corn syrup. Bring to a boil over medium heat, and boil for two minutes.
Pour sugary, buttery goodness over cereal mixture. Stir to coat. Spread mixture in a single layer into prepared pan and bake for 10 minutes. Cool for ten minutes, and then break into small chunks. Mix in candy.
Store in an airtight container. Best in first five days, but actually keeps longer.
I wouldn't worry about it being around for more than five days unless you are making vast quantities.
You've been warned!
