Sweet Chex Mix

By Stephanie

   This is crazy good.  I had a friend post it on facebook.  She warned me.  She called it crack…I should have listened.  But I thought, she is just tired and needs a snack.  I mean, she does have SEVEN kids.  (I am amazed at anyone who has even a half kid more than me!)  So I made it….and I ate, and ate, and ate. 

   Now if you are diabetic, like Dyney, don’t even try it.  You will end up in a coma for sure.  I on the other hand just have to do triple the cardio for the next two weeks to counter the carbs. 

  Oh, her recipe calls for M&Ms.  I didn’t have any, and it was plenty sweet and addicting without.  But you can add them if you like….



Sweet Chex Mix

makes a lot


· 1 1/2 c butter

· 1 c light karo syrup

· 1 c sugar

· 3 c Rice Chex

· 3 c Corn Chex

· 6 c golden grahams

· 2 c coconut

· slivered almonds or cashews. I prefer cashews.

· Big bag of M&Ms

How to make it:

· In large bowl combine cereals, coconut and nuts

· In saucepan combine butter, sugar and karo syrup (I actually did this in a large microwave proof bowl and once it was melted and combined put it in again for the 2 minutes cooking time)

· Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes

· Pour over cereal mixture

· When the mixture's slightly less warm, toss in the bag of M&M's. 

· Spread on wax paper till slightly dry to touch

Also, here's a cool tip about the karo syrup. If you spray your measuring cup first with Pam cooking spray it will come out without being sticky. Now don't say I didn't warn you.

  1. I always throw craisins into my sweet chex mix and no M&M's. So delicious!
