This is my take on the sweet Chex Mix so aptly named, Addiction. It is highly adjustable, so experiment away. By the by, this makes a ton - so you'll have enough to share with friends and neighbors.

3 sticks butter
2 C. sugar
2 C. karo syrup (light corn syrup)

Boil for 3 minutes and pour over:

1 large box Rice (or Corn Chex)
1 large box Golden Grahams (or Life cereal)
3-4 C. Coconut
3 C. Sliced Almonds

1/2 bag or so of broken pretzel pieces

Stir until cereal mixture is coated with sugar mixture. Spread onto parchment paper to cool.

I adore this mix. My secret ingredient? M&M's. The candy shell keeps them from melting, they add a punch of color, and just the right amount of chocolaty goodness.
