A recipe obtained from DH's former boss. As a tradition we would go chop down a Christmas tree in the forest then settle in at the lodge and play games while snacking on this sweet treat. Be prepared-this makes a TON. Cooking time is cooling time.

  • 9 cups Rice Chex
  • 9 cups Corn Chex
  • 7 cups Golden Grahams cereal
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 12 cup almonds
  • 2 cups light Karo syrup
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 12 cups butter or 1 12 cups margarine


  1. Mix first 5 ingredients in a large bowl that has been very lightly greased and set aside.
  2. Bring remaining ingredients to a boil on the stove.
  3. Boil for 4 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and wait until boiling subsides then pour over cereal mixture.
  5. Stir until cereal is covered.
  6. Spread mixture onto cookie sheets or wax paper and allow to cool.

I made this for a Thanksgiving get together. It was a huge success, most people found it very addicting and couldn't stop eating it. I set aside a small portion that was only rice and corn chex for my sister who can't eat gluten. Thanks!

I made this one this morning for the evening tiger scout meeting and it really never dried enough to touch without being really messy. I put it into clear plastic cups with a few pretzel twists on the bottom of each, hoping the pretzels would pull some of the moisture down. When I gave out the cups though, it went over fairly well. 6 of the 8 kids ate it and 4 of the parents did as well. Next time, I'll use less of the wet ingredients to the same amount of cereal. Oh, and I didn't have golden grahams, so I used multigrain cheerios. Thanks!
