Ingredients

  • 14 ounces Rice Chex Cereal
  • 7 ounces sweetened coconut shredded
  • 5 ounces slivered almonds

  • ¾ cup butter
  • 1 ¼ cups corn syrup
  • dash salt

Instructions

  • 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.
