Warning: do not make this if you are trying to practice portion control! My sister made this while we were visiting for Christmas and it truly is addicting! I could tell you scientifically why it's addicting but that would ruin all the fun! Thanks to Anne from Good Eats for sharing this recipe. You just can't get enough of this sweet and crunchy cereal mix. We loved it so much, I made it again at home for New Year's.
*Anne wasn't kidding when she said Ginormous bowl. I tried a huge soup pot, roasting pan, and my biggest bowl and none were big enough. Maybe 1/2 the recipe or make it in two batches.*
Sweet Chex Coconut Mix
2 boxes of Chex (one rice and one corn, or can use 2 corn or 2 rice)
1 lb sliced almonds
4 cups wide coconut (NOT flaked coconut, I buy wide coconut at a local health food store)
1 1/2 cups butter
2 cups sugar
2 cups light Karo syrup
In a ginormous bowl, (or brown paper sack works well too) combine cereal, almonds and coconut.In a saucepan over medium heat, start melting the butter and then add the sugar and corn syrup. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil. Once bubbly, let it boil for 3 minutes, then remove from heat. Pour over the dry goods and stir to make sure all the sticky goodness spreads over all the cereal. Keep in a resealable container and enjoy!!
