  • Yield: 15 Servings
  • Preparation Time: 10 Minutes
  • Cooking Time: 10 Minutes
  • Total Time: 20 Minutes


  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 8 cups Rice Chex cereal
  • 1 to 2 cups sweetened coconut flakes
  • ½ cup sliced almonds, plus more if desired
  • 1 cup salted pretzel sticks, broken into 1-inch pieces (optional)
  • ¾ cup (1½ sticks) salted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows (optional)
How to Make It
  1. Spray a large bowl with nonstick cooking spray. Pour the Chex cereal into the bowl and mix in the coconut, nuts, and pretzels (if using). Set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine the butter, sugar, and corn syrup and heat over medium heat, stirring, until the butter has melted. Raise the heat to medium-high. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring continuously, for 3 minutes, or until the sugar has dissolved. Remove the pan from the heat and add the vanilla. Stir until combined.
  3. Carefully pour the mixture over the Chex mix and stir until the cereal is coated. Stir in the marshmallows (if using), and then spread the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with waxed paper and let cool. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
