My kids love this stuff. In a big way. I love the stuff, too. This Cereal Party Mix is easy to make, makes a ton, and is loved by pretty much everyone. That (in my opinion) makes it a pretty near perfect treat.
The neighbors love it when I make a batch of the Cereal Party Mix. I end up sharing lots so I don't eat WAY more than I should. Heck, I eat WAY more than I should. I share so I don't eat the whole batch by myself!
If you're looking for an easy and tasty neighbor gift for Christmas, give this Cereal Party mix a try. It's always a hit!
1 (7 ounce) bag coconut (flaked, shredded, etc)
1 (14 ounce) box corn Chex cereal
1 (12 ounce) box Golden Grahams cereal
1 cup slivered almonds
1 cup plain M&Ms
1 cup butter
1 1/3 cup sugar
1 1/3 cup corn syrup
Combine butter, sugar and corn syrup in a medium sized sauce pan and heat on the stove over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. When the mixture comes to a boil, boil 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from stove. While the mixture is heating, pour both cereals, coconut and almonds into a large (HUGE) bowl. Butter 2 large cookies sheets and set aside. Pour hot syrup over the cereal mixture and mix until everything is well coated. Add M&M and mix to evenly distribute. Pour Cereal Party Mix onto the 2 buttered cookie sheets and let cool.
