makes twenty servings

1 bag (15 oz) Chex Mix® traditional snack mix 
1 cup pecan halves 
1/2 lb. bacon (6 to 8 slices), crisply cooked and crumbled 
1/2 cup packed brown sugar  
1/2 cup butter 
1/4 cup light corn syrup 
2 tablespoons bourbon 
3/4 teaspoon chipotle chili powder 

Heat oven to 300°F. Line two 15x10x1-inch pans with foil. Spray foil with cooking spray. In large bowl, mix snack mix, pecans and bacon. Set aside.

In 2-quart saucepan, heat brown sugar, butter and corn syrup over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until bubbly around edges. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally; remove from heat. Cool 2 minutes. Carefully stir in bourbon and chipotle chili powder. Pour over snack mixture; toss until evenly coated.

Spread snack mixture on pans. Bake 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes, to caramelize mixture. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Break into pieces. Store covered in refrigerator.
