Sweet Chex Mix

Recipe Adapted From One Lovely Life

I hope I have some left by the time it is dry. Makenzy keeps sneaking handfuls.
1 box Multi Grain Chex
1 box Cinnamon Toast Crunch
2 cups unsweetened coconut
1 cup slivered almonds
1-1/2 cups sugar
1-1/2 cups brown sugar corn syrup
3/4 cup butter
1 tsp almond extract

Combine cereals, coconut, and almond in a large bowl.

In a large saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup, and butter. Cook and stir over medium heat until the mixture comes to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes, then remove from the heat. Stir in almond extract and pour over cereal mixture. Toss to coat well.

If packaging to give away, or if you don’t want it quite so sticky, spread Chex mix out over parchment or waxed paper to dry. Allow to dry up to 8-12 hours before packaging.
