    HeatherFeather's Note:

    I first tasted this sweet, different version of Chex mix at a Watkins home-demo party. Almost everyone went home from the party with a copy of this recipe. The maple flavor extract is the secret ingredient. Plan ahead - once cooked, this will need to cool before serving.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 cup sweet unsalted butter or 1/2 cup margarine, melted (1 stick)
    • 1/3 cup brown sugar
    • 2 teaspoons maple extract
    • 8 cups Chex cereal (any flavor - they used a mixture of corn, rice, and wheat flavor)
    • 1 cup mixed chopped nuts, to taste


    1. 1
      Melt butter or margarine in a large microwavable bowl big enough to hold all of the cereal& nuts later (about 2 quarts)- don't put the cereal& nuts in yet, though.
    2. 2
      If your microwave is very small, you may need to make half batches.
    3. 3
      Once melted, quickly whisk in brown sugar and maple extract.
    4. 4
      Stir in the cereal and the nuts until coated and return bowl to microwave and cook on HIGH heat 4-5 minutes, stirring after every minute.
    5. 5
      Spread out mix onto cookie sheets lined with wax paper and let cool.
    6. 6
      Break apart and store in an airtight container.

      What a yummy snack! I used margarine in place of the butter, and substituted mini-pretzels for the nuts to make it a little healthier. It's nice and crunchy and has a great maple flavor! I'll definitely be making this again.

      My husband and I used to sell Watkins Products @ home parties & made this as a demo. This recipe always ended up w/lots of sales of maple extract! Adults and kids alike love it. It's easy to make and is portable, too!

      This was ok. I was expecting more maple flavor. It could've been that I used imitation maple flavor instead of a good quality extract? I'm not sure. I ended up throwing out most of the batch because I decided it wasn't good enough to be worth the calories.
