Harvest Party Mix

Harvest Party Mix

11 oz. package twisted pretzels
10 1/2 oz. pkg mini peanut butter Ritz Crackers
1 c. dry roasted peanuts
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. white Karo Syrup
2 TBS vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
10 oz. pkg. plain M&M's (that's what the recipe calls for, but I think that Reeses Pieces would taste better...)
18 1/2 oz. pkg. candy corn

Combine pretzels, crackers and peanuts in a large bowl. Mix sugar, butter and Karo syrup in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 5 minutes then remove from heat and stir in vanilla and baking soda. Mix will foam. Pour this over the pretzel mix, stirring until well coated. Place into a greased 15x10" baking pan. (I put foil on the bottom and sprayed it with Pam, that way it was easier to clean up!!) Bake at 250 degrees for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. break apart while warm; add M&M's (or Reese's Pieces) and candy corn. Cool before storing in air tight containers. Makes about 16 cups.
