Pecan Praline Crunch - Salty and Sweet Goodness
1 6-ounce box or larger of Quaker Oat Squares
1 cup pecans chopped
1/3 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/3 cup light corn syrup
3 Tbsp vegetable oil (I used sticks of margarine)
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Apply cooking spray onto a 13 by 9 inch cookie sheet. Combine the brown sugar, the light corn syrup, and the vegetable oil in a microwave bowl. Microwave for 1 1/2 minutes. Stir. Microwave again for another 30 seconds. Combine the cereal and the wet mixture together along with the pecans. Gently mix and spread onto the cookie sheet. Bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour, stirring the mixture every 20 minutes. Immediately spread the mixture out on parchment paper and break into pieces.
