Gooey Almond and Coconut Chex Mix Recipe

 Gooey Almond and Coconut Chex Mix from
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?!

  • 1 (14 ounce) box Rice Chex cereal
  • 1 (7 ounce) bag sweetened coconut
  • 1 (5 ounce) bag slivered almonds
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/4 cups light corn syrup
  • Dash of salt


  1. Spray a LARGE (the biggest you can find!) bowl with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Pour in the entire box of Chex cereal, coconut, and almonds. Gently mix together.
  3. Mix together the sugar, butter, light corn syrup, and dash of salt in a medium saucepan over high heat.
  4. Bring to a full boil, turn heat down to medium, and cook for three minutes, stirring constantly.
  5. Pour over the cereal mixture in the big bowl and stir evenly.
  6. Spread cereal evenly on wax paper and let cool.
  7. 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!
  8. You can also store it in an airtight container or Ziploc bag and it lasts for a couple of days.

  1. We LOVE this recipe!!! Thank you so much for sharing. It is so addicting we call it 'crack'. That's its name around here. People call and request that i bring 'crack' for this or that function. When at the grocery store my kids will remind me to get the ingredients for 'crack'. We get some pretty funny looks! HA! My niece texted this morning and requested the recipe for crack. So i sent her this link. Again, thanks for sharing.
