Chewy Almond Chex Mix

13 December 2008

Here is another recipe I love. If you like coconut, almonds, and rice chex, you'll be in heaven. It's chewy and gooey and very addicting, plus super easy to make~microwave! I got the recipe from my friend, Ginger in Idaho.

Chewy Almond Chex MixIn large bowl, put

12-15 oz Rice Chex
2 cups shredded coconut
2 cups sliced almonds

Mix and set aside. In a microwaveable bowl, combine

1 cup light Karo syrup
1 ½ cubes butter
1 cup sugar
sprinkle of salt

Mix and microwave for 2 minutes, stir. Then microwave for about 2 more minutes until it boils. Remove and add

½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract or almond extract (I use almond, because I love everything almond)
Pour over dry mixture and mix well.
It's also cute to put in cellophane bags and to give to neighbors and friends with a note saying, "we made a list and "chexed" it twice, to be sure we included our neighbors so nice" or something along those lines.


  1. I'm really enjoying your blog thanks for giving me the link:)

  2. Hey Melissa;

    Your almond chex mix sounds wonderful. I read your previous post about the peppermint sticks. When we were kids we would cut the top off a lemon and poke a peppermint stick down in the lemon, squeeze the lemon and suck the juice thru the peppermint stick! Try it! They are sooooo good!
