Gooey Almond and Coconut Chex Mix Recipe
Gooey Almond and Coconut Chex Mix is a family favorite! We make it each Christmas to give out to neighbors because it makes a HUGE batch. Perfect for parties or a movie night treat.
- 14 ounces Rice Chex Cereal
- 7 ounces sweetened coconut shredded
- 5 ounces slivered almonds
- 1 ½ cups sugar
- ¾ cup butter
- 1 ¼ cups corn syrup
- dash salt
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 med/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 and let cool.
Once it cools, I bag it up in little cellophane bags and share with neighbors and friends. Or put it in a bowl and dig in!
You can also store it in an airtight container or Ziploc bag and it lasts for a couple of days.
