I am going to make my favorite Chewy Chex Mix tonight. Thought I would share the recipe with you again.
You will need:
- 1 box Rice Chex
- 2 cups grated coconut
- 1 cup sliced almonds ( you can use sun flower seeds instead, if you have nut allergies )
- 2 cups pretzels
Sauce you will need:
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup Light Karo syrup
- 3/4 cup butter ( 1 1/2 sticks)
- 1 tsp Vanilla
In large bowl, mix together, cereal, coconut, nuts or seeds, and pretzels. Set aside to make sauce.
In a medium sauce pan add, sugar, butter and Karo. Over MEDIUM heat slowing melt butter and blend ingredients together. Stir while heating. Once it comes to a boil cook for 2 minutes….( set a timer, if it cooks longer it will be too hard, if it does not cook longer enough it will be too soft) Once it has cooked at a full boil for 2 min take off heat. Add Vanilla, Pour over the top of cereal mixture in bowl, stir till all cereal is well coated. Then pour out on a greased cookie sheet, and top with sprinkles if you want. Let cool, store in zip lock bag, enjoy!
