  • 3 cups Rice Chex cereal
  • 3 cups Corn Chex cereal
  • 3 cups Golden Grahams cereal
  • 2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 ½ cups slivered almonds
  • ¾ cups butter 1 1/2 cubes
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 cups holiday M&M's


  • Combine all cereal, coconut and nuts in a large bowl.
  • In a medium saucepan, heat the butter, sugar, corn syrup and salt over medium heat. Once it begins boiling, set a timer and boil for 3 minutes, stirring often.
  • Once it's done, remove from heat and pour mixture over cereal. Stir well, so that everything is coated. Let sit for about 15 minutes stirring often to cool, then add M&M's and gently stir once more. Store in an airtight container. Enjoy!


Recipe yields about 10 cups of snack mix. I generally measure out 1.5 cups for gifts, so you'll get about 6 gifts from each batch. 
1 serving is calculated as 1/3 cup.
