Sweet & Salty Frito Snack Mix

From the kitchen of Sheryl Sweet, W170381 of the Du-Bol Winnies of Florida


  • 1 bag (10.5 oz.) Fritos corn chips
  • 2 cups Rice Chex cereal
  • 2 cups mini pretzel twists
  • 1 1/2 cups nuts (I used a tin of mixed nuts)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick)
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup mini M&Ms


1. In a large bowl, mix together Fritos, Chex, pretzels, and nuts.

2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter with the sugar and corn syrup, stirring to help it along. Bring it to a boil and boil for 4 minutes without stirring. Remove from heat.

3. Pour the butter mixture over the top of the Fritos mixture and toss to coat.

4. Place into a large roasting pan (or aluminum pan for easy clean up) and bake in a preheated 350F degree oven for 8 minutes.

5. Remove from oven and stir. Bake for 8 more minutes.

6. Pour contents of the roasting pan onto a parchment paper or wax paper-lined countertop and let cool.

7. Break into smaller pieces and then sprinkle with M&Ms. Store in an airtight container. Keeps for about a week.
