Chex/Graham Mix - a Family Favorite

This is a recipe I gained/inherited from Brad's mom.  It's a favorite of their family - she made it every year for Christmas.  It's a favorite of our family too but we make it all the time - it's too good to only have at Christmas time.  Another plus - it only takes about 15 minutes to make two cookie sheets full of wonderful deliciousness.  Don't you just love an easy and super yummy recipe?  Me too!  :)
Chex/Graham Mix
Mix together in a large bowl:
1/2 box Rice Chex
1/2 box Golden Grahams
1 1/2 cups shredded, sweetened coconut
1 1/2 cups sliced almonds

In a sauce pan, combine:
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup light Karo syrup

Stir over medium to medium high heat until mixture begins to boil.  Bring to a full boil and boil for 3 minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in 1 tsp vanilla until well mixed.  Immediately pour over the cereal mixture and stir until well coated.  Spread  mixture out on two wax paper covered cookie sheets to cool.  Enjoy!
