With the Super Bowl quickly approaching, Made in Oklahoma Coalition shared this game-worthy treat to kick off your watch party.
This simple recipe includes ingredients from two MIO Coalition members: Griffin Foods Co. and Hiland Dairy Co.
3 cups Cheerios cereal
2 cups chopped Oklahoma pecans
21/3 cups Griffin's Cinnamon Roll Syrup
1½ cups brown sugar
1¼ cups Hiland Salted Butter
1 teaspoon Griffin's Vanilla Extract
1½ teaspoons baking soda
• In a separate large mixing bowl, combine cereal and pecans. Pour syrup mixture over the cereal and pecans, tossing and stirring until well coated. Spread mix evenly onto a well-greased baking sheet.
• Bake for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from oven and spread mixture onto a large cookie sheet. When party mix has cooled, break into bite-size pieces and enjoy.
• Tip: To maintain freshness, store party mix in an airtight container.
