Directions:
Stir butter, light karo syrup, and sugar in a pan and bring to a boil for 3-4 minutes.

In a large metal or ceramic bowl, pour the sugar mixture over the top of all the mix. Mix well. Make sure most of the cereal, nut and candy pieces are coated.
In a waxed-paper lined 13x9" pan, press the mix firmly (you might want to coat your hands with butter, or use waxed paper coated in shortening).
Allow to set and cool. Cut into bars and serve.
**Another option is to spread the mix out into small clumps onto waxed paper and serve in a bowl when cooled.

Personal Notes:
This is a personal favorite! You can mix it up by changing cereals (rice krispies are fun, and frosted flakes are good too), or you can stick to one cereal- you don't need two. Try changing candies or nut variations (I wouldn't suggest walnuts).
