Chocolate Caramel Crunch

This was a super easy.  I thought I had white chocolate, but when I got to that step in the recipe, discovered I didn't actually have any.  But my family gobbled it up without it, so we'll say that is optional, although I'm sure a drizzling of more chocolate would be great, it is perfectly fine without it.  

Recipe from: The Farm Girl

8 cups Chocolate Chex cereal
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
6 Tbsp butter
3 Tbsp light corn syrup
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup white vanilla baking chips (optional)

1. Pour cereal into a large bowl and set aside. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper and set aside.

2. In a medium microwavable bowl, microwave brown sugar, butter and corn syrup uncovered on high for 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute, and until completely melted and smooth. Stir in baking soda until dissolved. Pour over Chex. Stir until evenly coated. Spread in an even layer on a cookie sheet. Let cool 10 minutes and break into bite-size pieces.

 If desired...In a small microwavable bowl, microwave vanilla baking chips uncovered on high about 1 minute, stirring after 30 seconds, or until chips can be stirred smooth. Drizzle over Chex. Refrigerate until set.

 Store in tightly covered container. Enjoy!
