Chex Cereal Brittle

We have friends who are gluten free and while we love seeing them, I always find it challenging to brings snacks or foods that they can enjoy too. Upon some serious web surfing to find football worthy, gluten free snacks, we all agreed that this sounded good. And boy, was this stuff additive!  If snuggling on the couch for a holiday movie, football game or marathon of Housewives of Beverly Hills is on your weekend agenda, consider moving these babies a little out of reach so you don't consume them in one sitting....

8 cups rice Chex cereal
1 cup salted peanuts
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla

Heat oven to 300°F. Spray two 15x10x1-inch pans with cooking spray.  In a large bowl, mix all ingredients until evenly coated.  Gently heating the condensed milk may make it easier to mix.  Spread in pans in single layer.  Bake 20 to 22 minutes or until light golden brown.  If not browned, stir gently and bake an additional 8 - 10 minutes, watching it carefully. 

Spread on waxed paper to cool, about 15 minutes. Break into pieces. Store in airtight container.
