2 boxes tiny Ritz dinosaur crackers
2 cups any kind of whole nuts
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
Pre-heat oven to 250 degrees. Mix nuts and crackers in a large pot. In a large saucepan, bring sugar, butter/margarine and corn syrup to a boil and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla and baking soda. Stir--baking soda will foam up. Mix everything together with the nuts and crackers. Bake 30-45 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. Pour onto wax paper to cool.
