Happy Holidays: Ooey Gooey Chex Mix

Hello fellow TT & J readers! I’m Kara from Creations by Kara, where I share everything from recipes to DIY home decor. I LOVE the Christmas season, and I’m thrilled to be a part of Jen’s Holiday Series. If you haven’t checked out the previous ideas, make sure you do!

Today I am sharing a recipe for sinfully yummy Chex Mix. I’ve made several different recipes for snack mix, but this one is my very favorite! It is ooey, gooey, crunchy, and pretty much irresistible. Which is why I can only make it for Christmas. I can’t stop eating it! It is soooo good!

I like whipping up big batches and handing it out for neighbor gifts. I came up with a cute gift tag that goes perfectly not just with this Chex mix, but with any recipe for snack mix that you have.

I like to use the shaved coconut from the bulk section of my local health food store because it isn’t as sweet, and it comes in bigger pieces. But a regular bag of sweetened shredded coconut will work if that’s all you have.

Ooey Gooey Chex Mix

6 1/2 cups corn Chex
6 cups golden grahams
2 cups coconut
2 cups sliced almonds
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter
Mix cereals, coconut, and almonds in a large bowl. In a heavy saucepan, combine corn syrup, sugar, and butter. Boil for 2 minutes and let cool 2 minutes. Pour over cereal mix. Stir well and spread out on cookie sheet to cool.
You are sure to score bonus points with your neighbors if you deliver some of this amazing snack mix for Christmas!
