Homemade Cranberry Nut Bars

Ever had a Cranberry Almond “Kind” Bar?  I love them and they are pretty amazing.  I decided to attempt my own homemade version.

Start by mixing all the ingredients (except the corn starch) in a pot.

Bring the mixture to a boil.  Watch the bottom of the pot where the liquid collects to tell if it is boiling.  Add the cornstarch, then reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.  Empty the contents into a glass backing dish or a metal backing dish covered with foil.  Wait 1 hour till completely cooled.  Cut and enjoy!

Homemade Cranberry Nut Bars
1 Cup Dried Cranberries
1 Cup Whole Almonds
3/4Cup Whole Macadamia Nuts
1 Cup Nature’s Path Crunchy Vanilla Sunrise Cereal (or something similar)
1/4 Cup Corn Syrup
1/4 Cup Honey
1 Tablespoon of Corn Starch
Mix all ingredients except corn starch in a non-stick pot and bring to a boil.  Watch the liquid against the bottom of the pot to tell when it is boiling.  Add the cornstarch and reduce heat to medium.  Continue to boil the mixture for 5 minutes.  Empty into a glass backing dish or a metal dish covered with foil.  Allow to cool and then cut into bars.
