    4      cups          Popped popcorn
    2      cups          Hexagon shaped corn & rice -- cereal
    1      cup           Mixed nuts
      1/2  cup           Brown sugar -- packed
      1/4  cup           Butter or margarine
    2      tablespoons   Corn syrup
      1/4  teaspoon      Salt
      1/2  teaspoon      Vanilla
      1/4  teaspoon      Baking soda
 
 In large microwave-safe bowl, combine popcorn, cereal and nuts. In 4-cup
measuring cup, combine butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and salt. Microwave on
HIGH for 1-1/2 minutes; stir. Microwave on HIGH for 45 seconds to 2 minutes until

become foamy. Pour over popcorn mix; toss to coat.
 Spread half of mix evenly in 12x8 dish. Microwave on HIGH for 2-3 minutes or
