Sweet and Spicy Snack Mix:

  • 5 Cups corn chips, such as Fritos
  • 4 Cups Crispix Cereal
  • 8 Cups popped corn
  • 1 (11.5 ounce) can mixed nuts

Mix ingredients in a large roasting pan

Preheat oven to 250 degrees

Make syrup

Syrup:

  • 1/2 Cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 Cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons chili powder (I like to use a little more, up to 2 to 3 teaspoons)
  • 1/8 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 to 1/2 Teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt

Put syrup ingredients in 2-quare sauce pan and bring to a boil. Pour hot syrup over popcorn mixture in
roasting pan. Stir until all ingredients are coated with syrup. Bake in preheated oven 250-degree oven
for 1 hour, stirring every 20 minutes. Remove from oven. Spread hot mixture on waxed paper to
cool. Feeds several very lucky popcorn-hungry munchers!

Quick & Easy Punch

  • 2 quarts Hawaiian Punch
  • 1 Quart Cranberry Juice
  • 2 Liter bottle 7Up or Squirt

Combine all ingredients; reserve enough juice to make an ice ring. Freeze ice ring and add to punch
before serving.
