  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter not margarine!
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 cups light Karo Syrup
  • 1 large box of Golden Grahams Cereal (18oz)
  • 1 large box of Corn Chex (18 oz) I use 1 & 1/2 boxes
  • 1/2 package sweetened flake coconut (about 1 cup) optional
  • 1-2 cups almonds, sliced or whole, or cashews, salted optional
  • other optional add ins: M&M's, white or dark melted chocolate, pretzels see recipe post for instructions on adding these items


  1. Place butter, sugar and Karo syrup into a medium sauce pan. Bring to boil over medium high heat for 5 minutes.

  2. Mix all dry cereal, nuts and coconut in large bowl.

  3. Pour cooked butter mixture over cereal.

  4. Gently mix and pour onto 3-4 lightly greased jelly roll pans.

  5. When completely cooled, place in cellophane bags to give away, or put into serving bowls.

Recipe Notes

  • I use 1 1/2 boxes of Chex, because I like it when the mixture is not super sticky. 
  • If you like the Chex treat to be sticky, cook the mixture for 3 minutes and do not add the additional cereal. 
  • If adding any type of chocolate or candy such as M&M's let the mixture cool COMPLETELY before adding, or the candy will melt onto the cereal.
