Ways to modify this sweet chex mix recipe

  • If you want to make a gluten-free version, there are lots of different gluten-free chex options. Just make sure to check the label on the box!
  • The nuts add a great salted touch, but if you’d like to leave them out, you easily can. You could incorporate some pretzel pieces instead.
  • Try adding some mini chocolate chips to add a hint of chocolate.
  • Peanut butter would taste great added in this sweet chex mix recipe too. I’d start with adding 1/4 cup and then add more to taste as needed.
  • If you’re not a huge fan of coconut, you can omit it. I’d recommend adding some dried cranberries (or dried fruit of choice) to still give it some sweetness.

  1. My family makes something like this, too, but it includes Golden Grahams cereal. So good!

  2. How much is 2 cubes of butter?

  3. What is a cube of butter?

  4. Such a sweet gift and perfect for giving :)

  5. I just made this and it is sooo yummy! I usually make a similar recipe but instead of the nut, coconut combo I do raisins, sunflower seeds, and a container of mixed nuts. I think I like your combo better! Perfect Christmas treat!

  6. YUM! This really does look heavenly!!

  7. I love to make this as well but I substitute almond extract for the vanilla or sometimes I do half and half. Then it kicks it up a notch and adds more addicting flavor!

  8. What I though was Rice Chex on my shelf was Cinnamon Chex. I used them anyway, and it turned out delicious!

  9. My friend makes this and they call it pigeon poop! Don’t ask me why. All I know is it it soooo good. She also uses a mix of cereal. Yummy, Yummy

  10. These recipes look really good  can not wait too try some of these 

  11. Looks great  gonna,share with my friends

  12. would honey work instead of Karl syrup?

  13. 0 MY! I just made your Heavenly Chex Mix. I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of adding 1 cup of Cashews and 1 cup of Organic Hemp Hearts as I only had a 12 oz box of Chex. I really did NOT think it would be THIS delicious! I can’t stop sampling :) As soon as it cools, it will be bagged up to share with friends first thing in the morning as I can see I will not be able to resist it if it stays here! Would be wonderful for gifts or bake sales! It literally took less than 10 minutes to make! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  14. I have some kids that are allergic to coconut.  What could I use to replace that ingredient?

  15. Mine turned out very “clumpy” and gooey; way too sweet. I reread the directions and I seemed to have done it right. Don’t know what happened

    • Hi Marilyn! It isn’t supposed to be clumpy, but definitely has a gooey texture. You could add less karo syrup if you don’t like it as gooey. The texture is kind of similar to the texture of caramel corn. :)

  16. I absolutely love this recipe and have made it tones of times! But every time I don’t really know how long to tell people it will keep for as a gift. (It never really lasts long enough to worry about because we eat it up) but I am just curious if you could tell me about how long to keep it. 

    • Good question! I run into that too!

      I usually say a week or two, but we always eat it up within two or three days. :)

  17. I am making this right now for family game night. I am using Chex, Teddy Grahams, cashews, almonds and coconut. Instead of vanilla, I will use almond extract. My husband is already picking at it and I have not even made the glaze yet!!!

  18. Would adding walnuts work with these other ingredients?

  19. I just made this and it is amazing! I need to run away from it or I am going to eat it all!

  20. GAH sweet chex mix sounds fantastic!!!

  21. This is such a fun twist on chex mix. I am used to the savory kind. I have been missing out!

  22. This is such a great party snack!

  23. I could munch on this all day long! Great sweet treat!

  24. PERFECT snack! Saving to make soon!

  25. So fun, my kids would love this!
