cup sliced almonds
cup butter or margarine, melted
cup packed brown sugar
cup frozen (thawed) orange juice concentrate

Heat oven to 300°F. In large bowl, mix cereals and almonds.

Bake uncovered 30 minutes, stirring after 15 minutes. Stir in cranberries. Cool completely, about 15 minutes. Store in airtight container.
Having an extra set of hands is especially helpful when pouring the sauce over the cereal so that one person can pour and one can stir.
