Frito Snack Mix

I finally got around to making this snack that a friend told me about a while ago.  We are both lovers of all things salty & sweet, so I knew I would love it!
I was a little apprehensive about the whole frito thing, but believe me, it works.  Who would have know fritos covered in butter & sugar would taste that amazing?
And just a fair warning...this stuff is addicting!
Frito Snack Mix

1 bag (10.5 oz.) fritos
2 cups small pretzel twists
2 cups chex cereal
1 1/2 cups nuts (walnuts, pecans, macadamian, cashews, etc.)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
mini M&M's
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine the fritos, pretzels, cereal and nuts in a large bowl; set aside.

Place butter, brown sugar and corn syrup in a small saucepan.  Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it starts to boil.  Boil, without stirring, for 4 minutes.

Pour over the frito mix and stir to combine. 

  Place on a large cookie sheet.  

Bake for 8 minutes.  Remove and stir it around.  Place back in the oven for another 8 minutes.
Lay 2 sheets of wax paper on counter or table.  Transfer the cooked frito mix onto the paper to cool. 

 When cooled, break into pieces and sprinkle with M&M's.

Dig in!
