In a medium bowl, combine four cups cocoa flavored rice cereal and one cup peanuts. I used unsalted peanuts but salted would be fine to use also. Mix these up and pour the syrup mixture over it, tossing to coat.

Spread the mixture onto a large sheet pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, stirring halfway through.
