Don’t you just love that title? My friend Emily shared this recipe with me, and that’s her name for it. So much better than what I would have called it…Chewy Chex Mix. Lol.

I made a gigantic batch to take around to friends and neighbors, and it was so easy…and yummy! I made so much, that it was on a super long piece of aluminum foil all the way down my island, and it was super hard to resist. SO good!

I made just a few changes to the original recipe–I switched out the sliced almonds for honey roasted peanuts, and added original M&Ms for a little chocolate.

Whether you wrap it up and take it to neighbors, share it at a party, or leave it out on your own countertop for snacking, it is delicious and irresistible.

Smooshy Smooshy

Mix in a large bowl:
1 box Golden Grahams
1 box Chex
3 c. shredded coconut
2 c. sliced almonds

Boil for 3 minutes:
2 c. sugar
3 c. white Karo syrup
2 1/2 cubes of butter (nope, not a typo!)

Remove from heat and add 2 tsp. vanilla. Pour over cereal mix and stir until cereal is well coated. Spread on 2 cookie sheets until cool. Store in a covered container.




Enjoy!

  1. I do love that title. That looks really yummy. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful Christmas!

  2. I'm from Candada eh? so I don't know how much 2 1/2 cubes of butter is, can you convert that to cups for me please? What is Karo syrup? Thank you!

  3. Fionna– That would be 1 1/4 c. butter. Karo syrup is corn syrup. Sorry about that!

  5. Oh, I LOVE this stuff! Thanks for sharing (and explaining the cube thing, I'm from Iowa and didn't know! LOL)

  6. Collins Family–I did add M&Ms!! I just poured them in, about 1/2 a large bag.

  7. I love this stuff…lol, around here, we've always just called it "Christmas Chex Mix". I have to say, I also adore your cute gift bags.

  8. Oooooooh, that sounds good! How did you do your labels? They look like you printed the whole thing off as a big sticky label. So cute!

  9. We love Chex Mix at our house! I'm excited to try this one! I have a good recipe that we love if you would like it just let me know!
