HONEY GRAHAM SNACK MIX — Chex and Golden Grahams cereal with almonds and coconut, in a sweet candy coating. Perfect for holiday gift giving!
I love making snack mix for the holidays. And while I usually go for the savory stuff, this Honey Graham Snack Mix is one of my family’s favorites!
I should probably warn you, I could eat all 14 cups of this stuff by myself. It’s kind of addicting. Dangerously addicting.
I made this for a teacher gift for Christmas one year and three years later when another child had the same teachers, the first thing they told me at back to school night was that they were excited to have my kid and hoped I would have the same Christmas gift for them. This recipe is memorable! ~ Denise
If I were you, I’d plan on giving some away. Just package it up in a cellophane bag and tie it with a pretty ribbon. Trust me, your friends and neighbors will love you for it.
And if you’ll be sending care packages this holiday season, this snack mix travels well too.
I like to use peanuts or slivered almonds in the recipe, but any type of nuts (or no nuts at all) will work. And if you don’t like coconut, you can leave that out too.
Store brand Chex cereals work just fine in this recipe, but the store brand Golden Grahams tend to go soggy. The name brand version stays nice and crunchy, so I don’t usually skimp there.
The candy coating on this snack mix is meant to be a little chewy, so don’t overcook it or it will harden into one solid mass.
Unless, of course, you prefer it extra crunchy. Personally, I’d eat it either way. I literally have to have my husband hide it from me so I don’t eat too much!
If you’re looking for a sweet, candy-like snack mix to add to your recipe collection, then this is the snack mix for you!
