How To Make gooey sweet coconut chex mix

  • 1
    line two large baking sheets with parchment paper, or waxed paper. if you don't have either of these, just spray the sheets with cooking spray and call it good.
  • 2
    find yourself some corn chex cereal and some golden grahams cereal. toss 6 cups each into a large mixing bowl.
  • 3
    add 1 cup of coconut and 1 cup of slivered almonds.
  • 4
    take a big wooden spoon and give it all a nice stir.
  • 5
    into a medium sized sauce pan place 1 cup butter, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup light corn syrup.
  • 6
    get the pan to the stove and bring it to a boil over medium high heat, stirring constantly. let it boil for 4 minutes (keep stirring).
  • 7
    pour the sugary sweet gooey delight from the pan over the top of the cereal/coconut mixture.
  • 8
    pour the mix out onto the lined cookie sheets. let the yummy concoction cool and set for about 15-20 minutes.
  • 9
    don't be tempted to leave it in the mixing bowl. it will stick together like crazy. letting it set up on the sheets works a lot better.
  • 10
    once it has set up a bit, break it into chunks and store in an airtight container.
