Package gorp for your pocket, backpack, lunchbox or portion control and you'll never be without a wholesome snack even in that middle seat. 

Caramel Nut Dessert Gorp
Make it with any bite-size cereal (no gluten, low sugar, high fiber). Take a brisk walk after supper at home or in the campground, enjoying this dessert while you pace off the calories. 
     When you divide it into 32 servings of ½ cup each you’re getting maxi taste and crunch for mini carbs.

12 cups square crisp cereals
4 cups whole pecans
1 stick butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup light corn syrup
½ teaspoon each salt and baking soda

       Line two jelly roll pans with nonstick foil. Set the oven to 300 degrees. Spread cereal and nuts on pans.  In a saucepan melt butter and stir in sugar, corn syrup and salt. Cook until it comes to a full boil.  Remove from heat. Carefully drizzle over the cereal.  Bake without stirring 30 minutes at 300 degrees. Cool.  Makes 16 cups. 
When it’s completely cool, turn over lightly with a pancake turner to break up and mix.   Package by the cup or  half-cupful in snack bags. Take a brisk walk while enjoying this satisfying dessert and stroll away the calories.
