{smooshy smooshy}

Don't you just love that title? My friend Emily shared this recipe with me, and that's her name for it. So much better than what I would have called it...Chewy Chex Mix. Lol.

I made a gigantic batch to take around to friends and neighbors, and it was so easy...and yummy! I made so much, that it was on a super long piece of aluminum foil all the way down my island, and it was super hard to resist. SO good!

I made just a few changes to the original recipe--I switched out the sliced almonds for honey roasted peanuts, and added original M&Ms for a little chocolate.

Whether you wrap it up and take it to neighbors, share it at a party, or leave it out on your own countertop for snacking, it is delicious and irresistible.

Smooshy Smooshy

Mix in a large bowl:
1 box Golden Grahams
1 box Chex
3 c. shredded coconut
2 c. sliced almonds

Boil for 3 minutes:
2 c. sugar
3 c. white Karo syrup
2 1/2 cubes of butter (nope, not a typo!)

Remove from heat and add 2 tsp. vanilla. Pour over cereal mix and stir until cereal is well coated. Spread on 2 cookie sheets until cool. Store in a covered container.

I'm from Candada eh? so I don't know how much 2 1/2 cubes of butter is, can you convert that to cups for me please? What is Karo syrup? Thank you!

Fionna-- That would be 1 1/4 c. butter. Karo syrup is corn syrup. Sorry about that!

I love this, around here, we've always just called it "Christmas Chex Mix". I have to say, I also adore your cute gift bags.

Oooooooh, that sounds good! How did you do your labels? They look like you printed the whole thing off as a big sticky label. So cute!
