Cheerios* and Cinnamon Toast Crunch* cereals combine with a host of flavours to create this delicious brittle. After it's cooled, break it up into bite-sized pieces.
Mar 2, 2010

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (500 mL) CHEERIOS* cereal
  • 2 cups (500 mL) CINNAMON TOAST CRUNCH* cereal
  • 2 cups (500 mL) oats
  • 1 cup (250 mL) sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) maple syrup or maple-flavoured syrup

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 300°F (150°C). Line one large baking sheet with foil; spray foil with non-stick cooking spray.
  • 2
    In large bowl, mix both cereals, the oats and almonds; set aside.
  • 3
    In 1-qt (1 L) saucepan, heat butter, brown sugar and syrup over medium heat, stirring frequently, until butter is melted and mixture boils. Pour over cereal mixture; stir until well coated. Spread mixture evenly on baking sheet with rubber spatula until about 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick.
  • 4
    Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until almonds are golden brown. Cool completely, about 15 minutes. Break into pieces with fingers. Store in tightly covered container.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Success: The secret is not to stir the mixture the whole time it is baking and cooling. A sheet of brittle will form that can be broken into serving size pieces.
  • Tip 2
    Variation: Great with other nuts such as pecan, peanuts or cashews!
