Chex Mix

I hope that all of you had a wonderful Christmas Day!
I know our house was crazy!
Hopefully we can enjoy the end of this holiday season with some relaxing!
This recipe is one that I have used before to give as neighbor gifts...
but it is also delicious to munch on during....oh, say...a new years eve party,
or an office party, or a football party, or a neighbor party, or just for yourself to enjoy!
Your options are endless really!
Chex Mix
1 cup karo syrup
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter
1/2 box rice chex
1/2 box wheat chex
1/2 box golden grahams
coconut, as desired
nuts, as desired

For the cereal, I usually use just the smaller boxes...I don't remember what size
they were, or if they have bigger sizes...sorry!
In a large sauce pan, melt the butter.
Add sugar and syrup.
Bring to a boil.

Boil for 2 minutes, stiring every so often!
****HINT...if you want soft chex mix, don't cook the whole 2 minutes.
I usually cook mine for 1 minute 50 seconds.

In a seperate, LARGE bowl, combine the cereal, coconut and nuts.
(I have used cashews.)
Pour syrup mixture over cereal mixture and stir until EVERYTHING is coated.
Allow to cool.



  1. Funny that I should find this recipe on your blog. Just this morning I looked at my last box of the 12 boxes of Chex that I bought on sale in the hopes of making this Chex Mix and realized we had just eaten all the Chex with milk and granola!
    This looks good. I wonder if the Chex is still on sale!

  2. How funny I have the same exact recpie on my blog Ü We LOVE it!

  3. I Make this recipe every Christmas season but mine is with slivered almonds. We call ours Gooy Mix!
    (I don't mean to be critical have wheat chex on your recipe and corn chex in your picture.)
    Love ya!!!

  4. I do. Oops! I guess I decided not to follow the recipe...or even look at it really. Sorry!


Does it look good? Did you try it? Do tell!
