Serves: 10 servings
  • ½ cup Karo syrup
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 box Quaker Oatmeal Squares cereal
  • 2 cups pecan halves
  1. Combine the syrup, brown sugar, and butter in a pot large enough to hold the box of cereal (you'll add that later). Heat until it boils.
  2. Remove from heat and add vanilla and baking soda. Stir well.
  3. Pour the cereal and pecan halves into the pot. Stir until well coated.
  4. Transfer mixture into an aluminum foil lined 9×13 baking pan. It does not need to be in a single layer.
  5. Bake for 1 hour at 250 degrees, stirring every 20 minutes.
  6. Spread onto a flat baking sheet or foil covered countertop. Separate pieces and allow to cool.
  7. Store in an air-tight container for up to 2 weeks.
