Sweet Party Mix

We love snacking on party mix at our house, so when my mom sent a batch of this sweet mix home with my daughter, we knew we wanted the recipe since we ate the entire bowl that evening! 
My mom got the recipe from my aunt, so we're not sure where it originated, but it sure is yummy.

Sweet Party Mix

4 cups bite-size square corn cereal
4 cups bite-size square rice cereal
2 cups pretzel knots
1 cup sliced almonds
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
6 T butter
3 T light-colored corn syrup
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup dried cranberries, blueberries or cherries

In a large roasting pan combine corn cereal, rice cereal, pretzels and almonds; set aside.
In a medium saucepan combine brown sugar, butter and corn syrup.  Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture boils.  Continue boiling at a moderate, steady rate, without stirring, for 5 minutes more.
Remove saucepan from heat; stir in baking soda.  Pour over cereal mixture; stir gently to coat.
Bake in a 300 degree oven for 15 minutes; stir cereal mixture and bake 5 minutes more.
Remove from oven; stir in dried fruit.  Spread on a large piece of buttered foil to cool.
Break into pieces.  Store in an airtight container.
