What's for Dinner

Caramel Chex Mix

Caramel Chex Mix


  • 6 cups Wheat Chex cereal
  • 9 cups Corn Chex cereal
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Optional candy corn and pumpkins for Thanksgiving



  1. Heat oven to 250 degrees.
  2. Measure the cereal into a large container.
  3. In a 3 or 4 quart saucepan stir together brown sugar, butter and corn syrup.  (WARNING:  Resist the urge to use a smaller pan - the baking soda makes it bubble up!) 
  4. Cook and stir 8-9 minutes over medium heat until mixture heats to boiling.  Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat.  Stir in baking soda.  
  5. Pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated. 
  6. Pour onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a nonstick mat.
  7. Bake 40-50 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes, until coating is set.  Cool 5 minutes; stir in candies (optional).  Spread on parchment paper or nonstick mat to cool, about 10 minutes.  Break into pieces.  Store in an airtight container.
