This recipe was a staple in our house every holiday season while we were growing up- a couple of years ago I even made about 10 batches of it and took it around to our neighbors as a Christmas gift.
It is easy to throw together, the kids can help make it, and it is finished and ready to eat in less than 15 minutes. Warning: it’s super addicting.
I have absolutely no control when I make this, I just can’t stop nibbling. I even had it for breakfast this morning. It’s cereal, right?

the story behind this gooey almond and coconut chex mix

Every year for Christmas, my mom would make this for our neighbors, and our job was to go out delivering it.

She made it every year, and every year, there was hardly any left for us, to eat. It was devastating. Especially because we all loved it with a passion.

As we were out and about, delivering this delicious Chex Mix to our neighbors, we would be salivating as we handed them out

So now that I am an adult, I go crazy with this stuff. I could honestly eat the entire bowl.

If you are looking for the best holiday gift, to give someone, this is the one you have to make. It is so simple, and so delicious.

tips for making gooey almond and coconut chex mix:

-It’s important to use a large bowl when making this recipe because it makes a ton, and it is also very difficult to stir, so it can get a little messy.

– You will also want to spray the bowl with non-stick cooking spray, because once you add the gooey goodness, it will stick like crazy.

-As you cook the gooey mixture, you shouldn’t leave it’s side. It can easily burn if you are not carefully watching or keeping after it.

-Stir constantly, and you won’t have any problems, but keep an eye on it, and if it begins to boil over, be sure to turn the heat down a little bit.

  1. We LOVE this recipe!!! Thank you so much for sharing. It is so addicting we call it 'crack'. That's its name around here. People call and request that i bring 'crack' for this or that function. When at the grocery store my kids will remind me to get the ingredients for 'crack'. We get some pretty funny looks! HA! My niece texted this morning and requested the recipe for crack. So i sent her this link. Again, thanks for sharing.
