Holiday Chex Mix

I recently came across this recipe a few days ago and have really fallen in love with it.
16 cups chex or any cereal you want
2 cups coconut
1 cup sliced nuts (the first time I used a combination of walnuts and cashews because that is what I had at the time)
2 cups pretzels
1 cup sugar
1 cup light Karo syrup
3/4 cup butter
1 cup finely crushed candy canes.
In a large bowl combine cereal, coconut, nuts and pretzels.

In a medium sauce pan combine sugar, butter and karo syurp. Over Medium heat melt butter and blend ingredients together. Once it comes to a full boil cook for 2 minutes.

Once it has cooked for two minutes take off heat and slowly wisk in the crushed candy canes. If you dump it all in at once, it will become a large lump and be really hard to stir in.

Pour over the cereal mixture and stir until it is all coated. Pour onto a greased cookie sheet and let cool.
