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?

Ingredients in Gooey Almond Coconut Chex Mix:
- Rice Chex cereal
- sweetened coconut
- slivered almonds (can also use sliced almonds)
- corn syrup
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. This the THE BOWL that I used in the picture above (you could also use two mixing bowls if you don’t have a huge bowl).
- 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 on the stove top, stir constantly because it will easily burn.
- If it starts to boil over, just turn the heat down a little bit.
- Use a large wooden spoon to mix it all together in the bowl.
How to make Gooey Almond Chex Mix:
- Spray a LARGE (the biggest you can find) bowl with nonstick cooking spray.
- Pour in the entire box of Chex cereal, coconut, and almonds. Gently mix together.
- Mix together the sugar, butter, light corn syrup, and dash of salt in a medium saucepan over high heat.
- Bring to a full boil, turn heat down to medium, and cook for three minutes, stirring constantly.
- Pour over the cereal mixture in the big bowl and stir evenly.
- Spread cereal evenly on wax paper (I just spread the wax paper on my counter) and let cool.
- Once it cools, you can bag it up in little cellophane bags and share with neighbors and friends. Or put it in a bowl and dig in (I love when it’s warm and gooey!).
- You can also store it in an airtight container or Ziploc bag and it lasts for a couple of days.
