Someone lit a matchstick.

Coconut Crap

3 cups Corn Chex (optional)
3 cups Rice Chex
1/2 cup nuts (cashews, peanuts and/or almonds)
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

Combine Chex, nuts, and coconut in a large bowl. Set aside. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. In a medium saucepan, combine the corn syrup, butter, sugar, and vanilla. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Take off heat, and pour over the Chex mix and stir until evenly coated. Spread out onto cookie sheet and let set for a few minutes.
