If you’re a chewy Chex mix fan you absolutely must try this recipe for Best Ever Chewy Chex Mix. The brown sugar undertone from the Golden Grahams Cereal paired with the buttery chewy coating on the Chex, slivered almonds, coconut and M&Ms is absolutely fantastic!
I’d never heard of putting Golden Graham Cereal in Chewy Chex Mix until my friend Heather mentioned she was thinking about making some for the Super Bowl a few weeks ago.
I couldn’t stop thinking about it so when I found myself at the grocery store next, somehow all the ingredients ended up in my cart.
Since I happened to have all the ingredients, I decided to make it on Super Bowl Sunday too. Lets just say it was a “Touchdown!” We all LOVED it! I may or may not have almost cried when I woke up the next morning planning to eat the last couple bites as a breakfast appetizer and found, to my horror, that my husband and oldest son had finished it off when they were watching the final minutes of the game.
How could they?????
They’re dead to me.
After 12 years of marriage I thought I had made it very clear to Sim that you never, NEVER, eat the last bite of any homemade treat without asking me if I want it first.
Is it, or is it not, the worst thing ever to be dreaming about something only to find it has been eaten! Especially if it is something you rarely make or don’t have any more ingredients for…..
The Waaahm-bu-lance just pulled up, so I’ll stop crying now and give you the recipe.
It’s delicious friends, so finding an excuse to make it should be on the top of your priority list this week.
…..also hiding a small portion somewhere no one can find should be right there next to it on the priority list. just sayin’…..
