Ooey Gooey Holiday Chex Mix
Prep time
Total time
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 cups Rice Chex
  • 6 cups Golden Grahams
  • 1-2 cups chopped nuts (see note)
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup craisins
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  1. Stir butter, corn syrup and sugar in a pan and bring to a boil for 3-4 minutes.
  2. Mix remaining ingredients except white chocolate chips in a very large bowl (or separate into two bowls). Add white chocolate chips and mix some more.
  3. Pour syrup mixture over the dry mixture and toss.
  4. Spread mix out on waxed paper. It's totally acceptable (and expected) to eat it while hot, but be sure to let it cool before storing or giving it away.
The original recipe calls for 1 cup each of chopped almonds and cashew halves, but I usually just throw in whatever nuts I have available - walnuts, pecans, almonds or cashews - or a combination of a few of them. Don't eat nuts? It's fine to leave them out, too.

It's also fine to throw the white chocolate chips in with the rest of the ingredients, but they WILL melt if you pour the syrup mixture directly on top. I prefer to have my chocolate chips stay intact, but I've eaten this Chex Mix with melted white chocolate throughout, and that's pretty amazing, too. It's all about preference!
