Super snack-able, crunchy and munchy. Bake this so good mix that is sweetened with maple syrup and makes a lot for family game time.
Serves: LOTS, filled my 5 gallon jar!
1 cup pure maple syrup
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
6 cups peanuts
1-1/2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
1 (15 ounce) bag pretzel sticks
2 cups dried cranberries
½ pound bacon, crisp and crumbled
1 (11.5 ounce) package milk chocolate morsels
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 15x10x1" backing pan with foil; set aside. In a large bowl combine maple syrup, butter, peanuts and pepper flakes. Pour onto prepared pan and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, till bubbly. In an extra large bowl combine pretzels, crisp-crumbled bacon, and cranberries. After the peanuts are roasted, gently toss with with the pretzels, bacon and cranberries until all of the ingredients are coated with maple syrup. Spread on two large baking pans and let stand till dry. Add the milk chocolate morsels and store in a large container in a cool spot.
