I decided to play around with a Chex Mix recipe one day and came up with this. I made the mistake of shipping a batch to my husband and some of his fellow soldiers while he was deployed. I learned all about supply and demand after that. I had to make double and triple batches and they still ate it faster than I could make it! Hope you enjoy it as much as we do! It's a definite keeper!

  • 3/4 box
    rice chex cereal - 12.8 oz

How to Make Maple Cinnamon Almond Chex Mix

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix the Cinnamon Chex, Rice Chex and almonds together in a large plastic bowl.
  2. In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, bring the sugar, corn syrup, salt and butter to a boil. Stir occasionally until it turns golden and coats the back of a spoon, approximately 4 1/2 - 5 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and add the extract, stirring well.
  4. Immediately pour over the cereal mixture and stir to coat.
  5. Spread onto parchment paper and let cool. Store tightly covered.
  6. NOTE: This makes a HUGE batch of Chex mix! It can be halved with no problems. Also, maple extract is pretty potent! If you'd like a stronger maple flavor, you can increase to 3/4 teaspoon.
