An Expression of Gratitude

It's Christmas.  Time to say thank you to the many people who care for us and our families.  Here's an easy, one-size-fits-all gift for teachers, mail carriers, waste management workers, Sunday school teachers, etc. (unless it gets devoured first!).

Caramel Chex Mix

1- 17 oz. box Corn Chex
1 c. butter
1/2 c. light corn syrup
2 c. brown sugar
1 t. baking soda
1 c. mixed nuts
4 c. pretzels
1 c. M &M's

Pour cereal into a large microwave-safe bowl and set aside
Combine butter, corn syrup and brown sugar in large saucepan.  Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and add baking soda.  Stir until soda is mixed in well.
Immediately pour caramel sauce over cereal.  Stir and put in microwave for 1 1/2 minutes on high.  Stir and repeat 2 more times.  Stir after each interval.
Let mixture cool and add pretzels, nuts and candy.
Spread out on foil or waxed paper to cool.

"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.  Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father" (Col. 3:15-17 NASB).
