Sweet & Spicy Snack Mix

I received this recipe a few years ago via email.  It made the circuit then and seems to have disappeared.  I tweaked it ever so slightly ~

Sweet & Spicy Snack Mix

Mix in a large roaster ~

6 cups bite size round tortilla chips
6 cups hull-less popcorn
4 cups Crispix 
2 cups mixed nuts

Bring to a boil ~

3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup light corn syrup

Remove from heat and add in ~

1 tbsp Chili Powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp Red Pepper flakes

Pour mixture over the dry in the roaster and mix until coated.  Bake at 250° for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes.  When done, spread out on parchment paper and let cool.
