Caramel Cheetos

I saw this recipe a few years ago and have wanted to try it ever since. We made this while the girls were home over Thanksgiving break. I am sorry we waited so long! EVERYONE love them after thinking they wouldn't. They are addicting!

Caramel Cheetos
Taste of home bulletin board

2 cups light brown sugar
1 cup margarine - yes, for this one you must use margarine
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 - 21 oz. pkg. Cheetos- crunchy kind

Mix sugar, margarine and corn syrup in pan. Bring to a boil. Boil 5 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat and add soda. Stir until light in color and foamy.

Spray a roasting pan (deep 10 x 14) with Pam. Put Cheetos in pan. Pour the mixture over Cheetos and stir, coating each piece. Place in oven at 250 degrees. Bake for 1 hour stirring every 15 minutes. Immediately pour onto cookie sheets, sprayed with Pam.

VERY QUICKLY spread out as thin as possible. After about 5 minutes, pull/break these apart even more and loosen them from the cookie sheet.

***Original posters notes:  You will regret it if you don't double the batch as guests are going to demand MORE! You can bake batches together and add an extra 20 minutes to bake time. I do them separately because of having to work so quickly to keep them apart at the end. The one batch can almost get too hard while working with the other batch.
