Easter Chex Mix

  • Author: aimee


  • 1 24-ounce box wheat Chex cereal
  • 2 cups shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter ((1 1/2 sticks))
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 6.6 ounce box cheddar snack crackers ((I used the Target “market pantry” brand of chickadees crackers))
  • 1 bag easter egg M&Ms


  1. In a large bowl, combine chex cereal and coconut. Set aside.
  2. In a microwavable bowl, combine butter, corn syrup, sugar, and salt. Microwave for 3 minutes. Stir, and microwave again for 2 minutes. Be careful. The mixture will be hot. Stir in vanilla and baking powder.
  3. Pour butter mixture over the chex and coconut mixture. Gently stir in cheddar crackers. Set aside to cool.
  4. Stir in M&Ms once the mixture has cooled. Serve right away or store in an airtight container.
