Superbowl Chex Mix

superbowl chexmix


his Chex mix is better than the halftime show! Everything about this ooey-gooey mix is incredibly addictive. Just one taste will make your guests wonder what sets this mix apart…psst…it’s the honey. Whether you are tailgating or having fifty of your closest friends and family over for the big game, make sure you make enough or it could disappear before the coin toss.





6 cups Corn Chex

6 cups Rice Chex

6 cups Golden Grahams

4 cups Pretzel twists

7-ounce bag sweetened coconut, toasted

3 cups cashew pieces

2 cups butter

2 cups sugar

2 cups light corn syrup

1/2 cup honey

1 Tbsp. Vanilla Extract


  1. Bring to a boil butter, sugar, corn syrup and honey.
  2. Boil the mixture until it reaches the softball stage.
  3. Remove from heat and carefully stir in vanilla.
  4. While the mixture is slightly cooling combine dry ingredients in large mixing bowl or layer on a countertop covered with parchment paper.
  5. Pour syrup mixture over dry ingredients. if using a mixing bowl, be careful not to break apart cereal as you coat the mix.
  6. If using the countertop method, use a spatula to gently toss the mixture until completely coated.
  7.  Let cool completely before covering or putting in bags. This will ensure the cereal stays crunchy.


  • Make this recipe your own by adding family favorite ingredients like bugles or chow mein noodles. If adding chocolate pieces to the mix, wait to add until the syrup cools on the mixture.
  • Toasting the coconut adds such a great nutty flavor. Most people who claim to hate coconut, like it when toasted. Toast your coconut in the oven before adding to the mix…you won’t regret it.
  • By adding cashew pieces instead of whole cashews, you will get little pieces of goodness throughout the mix rather than a few big bites of nuts.
  • Adding pretzel twists instead of rods creates clusters of chewy yumminess held together in the twisted pretzel.
