Taste of Home.....good food.

This was the view from my seat last night at the Taste of Home at the Modesto Center. What fun....I've never gone before so I was a newbe last night.This was the line to go into another room and get samples of food......we did not do this as we had dinner before we came in.
After they took your ticket you received a bag of grocery's....and coupons all kinds of good stuff in this bag.
This issue of Taste of Home Fall 2008 was used and some of the recipes were demoed last night.
During the night they gave away lots of good stuff......Taste of Home cookbooks and I didn't win till the end when they gave away the food that was fixed last night. I won Chocolate Chex Caramel Crunch and the bowl......very cool. I took it to work today and everyone was on a sugar high all day. I will share the recipe below.

Chocolate Chex Caramel Crunch

8 cups Chocolate Chex cereal
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
6 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup vanilla or white chips

Place cereal in a large microwave safe bowl, set aside. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. In a 2 cup microwave safe measuring cup, microwave brown sugar, butter and corn syrup on high 1 minute, stir. Microwave 30 to 60 seconds longer. Stir until blended. Stir in baking soda until dissolved. Pour over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Microwave on high for 3 minutes, stirring every minute. Spread on baking sheet. Cool for 10 minutes. Break into bite size pieces. In a small microwave safe bowl, melt vanilla chips, stir until smooth. Drizzle over cereal mixture. Refrigerate until set. Store in an airtight container. Yield 16 1/2 cup servings.
