"Favorite" Chex Treat

This is another one from the Favorites recipe book.  I loved it and it was popular at my office.  One of my friends suggested making it as a "neighbor gift" for Christmas, etc.  It makes a ton and I had to use our big stock pot and a biggest mixing bowl to mix it all together.

1 (12 ounce) box Corn Chex
1 (13-ounce) box Golden Grahams
2 cups flaked coconut

Mix together cereal and coconut in a large bowl - or stock pot :-)

1 cup sugar
1 cup corn syrup
3/4 cup butter
1 (4-ounce) package slivered almonds (if you like almonds, you may want more)

Mix sugar, corn syrup and butter in saucepan and boil 3 to 4 minutes.  Pour over cereal mixture and coconut and toss to coat.  (Will be hot, be careful!)  Then add slivered almonds and toss again (if almonds are added first, they stay on the bottom of the bowl).  Spread out on waxed paper to cool.  (I just spread it on a greased cookie sheet because we were out of wax paper, at it worked just fine.)


  1. I love this stuff. Been making it for years!!

  2. Thanks for our new favorite Chex Mix recipe. I made this for Superbowl and it was a huge hit. The hubs has requested it for our kiddo's birthday party this week and my mouth is already watering just thinking about whipping it together. Yummy!
