Healthy Snack Mix

I LOVE this snack mix recipe I found in the Hungry Girl cookbook. I modified some of the ingredients

2 cups Cheerios(or puffed corn cereal)
1/4 cup Fiber One Carmel Delight(this is so yummy!)
1 cup pretzel thins(The Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps are the best and lower in calorie)
1/2 cup almonds
3 tblsp Splenda No Calorie Sweetner(granulated)
1 1/2 tblsp light whipped butter or light buttery spread
1 tblsp light corn syrup
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Since this is a quickie recipe, it's best to have all ingredients measured out and ready t go before starting, in order to avoid burning. Begin by setting out a large piece of foil for the recipe to cool on after it's prepared.

In a medium saucepan, combine butter, Splenda, corn syrup, and cinnamon. Stir while cooking over low heat. Once mixture is thoroughly blended and bubbling, stir in both cereals and coat them with the mixture. Continuously stir for about 2/12 minutes, until cereal mix looks well coated and toasty. Spread mixture out on foil until cool.
