Preheat oven to 300 degrees
In roasting pan combine cereal, crackers and nuts (crunchy stuff) and loosely mix
Combine all other ingredients in pan and mix together over low heat until butter is melted and everything combines. Alternatively, put ingredients in microwave safe bowl and warm slowly until all melted. Do not do this on high. You'll have buttery mess on the inside of your microwave if you do.
Pour the butter mixture over the mixture in the roasting pan, mixing it to get it evenly distributed over all the crunchy stuff.
Bake in the oven for 1 hour, stirring lightly ever 15 minutes. Allow to cool at least a bit or you'll burn your tongue. Dig in
