Holiday Crunch aka Christmas Crunch aka CRACK!

Christmas Crunch aka CRACK!
1-12.8-ounce box Rice Chex cereal
1-12-ounce box Golden Grahams cereal
1-7-ounce bag shredded coconut
1-4-ounce bag slivered almonds
1-1/2 cups butter (3...yes 3...sticks of butter)
2 cups sugar
2 cups corn syrup

Combine Rice Chex and Golden Grahams, coconut and almonds in a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine.
In a large sauce pan, cook butter, sugar and corn syrup to the "soft ball" stage...about 234 degrees on a candy thermometer. Pour over cereal mixture and stir until all is well coated. Pour mixture out onto 2 large cookie sheets to cool. Stir it around occasionally to prevent clumping. Store in an airtight container.
