Cranberry-Orange Chex Mix:

This is my mom's absolute favorite!!

4 1/2 cups Rice Chex Cereal
4 1/2 cups Corn Chex Cereal
1 cup sliced, slivered or halved almonds
1/4 cup butter
1/4 brown sugar
1/4 cup orange juice concentrate
1/2 - 1 cup dried cranberries

Heat oven to 300 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine cereal and almonds.
In a microwave safe bowl, combine butter, sugar and juice. Microwave on high for 1 minute; stir. Microwave in 30 second intervals until sugar and butter are melted and smooth.
Pour over cereal; mix until evenly coated.
Pour onto a greased jelly-roll pan. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring after 15 minutes. Stir in cranberries and pour onto wax paper to cool. Once completely cooled, store in an airtight container.
