Great Snack Recipe!

Leave a comment

The following snack, compliments of Carol Duckworth,  was served a the last summer symposium and received rave reviews.  It is a great “any-time” snack and so easy to make!


1 pkg Ritz Chips (Original Flavor)

2 cups Pecan Pieces

1 stick butter

½ cup White Karo Syrup (can use Dark Karo or mix them)

½ cup white sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

½ tsp. baking soda

Pre-heat oven to 250 F.  Spray a large cake pan or cookie sheet with sides with non-stick spray.  (I prefer a 9×13 cake pan.)  Spread the Ritz chips in the pan, breaking them up slightly.  Add pecans.  Set aside.

In a 2 quart pan, melt butter.  When melted, add Karo and sugar.  Bring to a full boil, stirring constantly.  Boil for 4 ½ minutes, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat and add vanilla and baking soda.  Stir well, then pour mixture over the Ritz Chips and pecans, stirring to coat well.  It is naturally sticky.

Bake one hour, stirring every 15 minutes.  (Spray your spoon with non-stick  spray to prevent sticking.)  Mixture will be crisp and slightly brown when done.

Turn out onto foil and let cool.  Break up into smaller pieces and store in airtight container.

Control yourself and do not eat it all.
