Watkins Chex Maple Party Mix

Recipe by HeatherFeather
READY IN: 15mins


  • 12
    cup sweet unsalted butter or 1/2 cup margarine, melted (1 stick)
  • 13
  • 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


  • 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.
  • If your microwave is very small, you may need to make half batches.
  • Once melted, quickly whisk in brown sugar and maple extract.
  • 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.
  • Spread out mix onto cookie sheets lined with wax paper and let cool.
  • Break apart and store in an airtight container.
