Heavenly chex mix …ooey gooey chex mix topped with fresh coconut and sliced almonds. Chex mix at it’s finest.
This is another fabulous recipe that comes from my grandma. I remember her making it for Christmas as a little girl. It was such a yummy treat. This was the first time I have made it on my own and I couldn’t believe how easy it was to make. This heavenly chex mix is seriously addicting! Take one bite and you’ll be hooked!
1 cup nuts (I used 1/2 cup sliced almonds and 1/2 cup cashews)
2 1/2 cup of sweetened coconut
2 sticks of butter (I used salted)
1 1/2 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cup karo syrup
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
Spray a large bowl with non-stick cooking spray. Pour chex in bowl and mix in the coconut and nuts. Set aside.
Cut the cube of butter into small pieces and place in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add sugar and karo syrup and stir together. Bring to a boil and then continue to cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add in vanilla and stir until combined.
Remove pan from heat and pour mixture over chex and stir until the mix is coated. Then spread the mixture out on wax paper and allow to cool. Store in an air tight container.
