Caramel Salted Corn Chex and Graham Cracker Pretzel Chocolate Toffee

Here’s another easy gift from your kitchen you can make for holiday gift giving, I bet once you start eating it you can’t stop. I put it in a bag and left it on the counter. Every time I walked by I grabbed a handful so I decided to put it n the cupboard so I would stay out of it and I’ve never been a cereal eater. The corn chex cereal is lightly coated with a coating of caramel candy and a sprinkling of sea salt. You don’t need a candy thermometer to make this candy coating either. It basically will finish in the oven to make sure all of cereal gets coated with the caramel. I would think you could add some nuts if you wanted also, I would swap out a cup or two of the cereal for the nuts.
