This Gooey Chex Mix is brought to you by General Mills Cereal and is a family snack-time favorite!
Crispy Rice Chex, Honey Nut Cheerios and Golden Grahams are combined with flaked coconut, sliced almonds and an ooey-gooey coating to make this treat irresistible!
With it being back to school season, I thought it would be fun to partner with one of my favorite brands, General Mills Cereals, to bring you this fun recipe!
My kids always come home from a long day of school and the last thing they want to do is sit down to do their homework.
With a little sweet treat break, my kids are happy and ready to focus again!
I’ve been a long time fan of the Big G cereals. They’re the only ones you’ll find in my pantry.
But what I love most about them, is how dedicated General Mills Cereals is to making their cereals better for us! Now, more than 90% of General Mills cereal recipes do not have artificial flavors or colors from artificial sources. Cinnamon toast crunch uses real cinnamon, Cocoa Puffs & Reese’s Puffs use real cocoa, and Honey Nut Cheerios uses real honey for flavor.
For color, Trix and Fruity Cheerios use extract from blueberries, purple carrots, and turmeric!
Not to mention the fact that they’ve paved the way for gluten free cereals. So yeah, they’re pretty awesome in my book.
That’s why I’m absolutely in love with this Gooey Chex Mix! It’s filled with my favorite cereals, coconut and almonds! The gooey butter mixture coats the party mix and makes it impossible to stop at just one bite.
I usually reserve this recipe for the holidays, but I think “Going Back To School” deserves something special, don’t you?
The fact that it just takes a few minutes to assemble (children can get in on the help-action too), you’ll be finding a reason to make this every week!
It’s crazy to me how this mix is gooey, yet the cereal stays crunchy!
Quite possibly the 8th wonder of the world.
How do you celebrate Back To School Season with your kids?

I have a recipe for carmel corn that includes condensed milk. Think I will use it instead and see how it turns out. Would also add corn chex and assorted nuts. Just nice to sometimes make the recipe your own.
I made this today and it is SOOO good! Thank you so much for this recipe! I have a feeling this will become a staple in our house.

I’m thinkin’ the only thing I might change/add: APPLE CINNAMON CHEERIOS – my personal favorite! YUM!!!
Oh my gosh that’s a great idea!! Have you seen the Pumpkin Spice Cheerios yet? How great would that be!?!?
I celebrate back to school by sticking my head in the sand and wishing summer wouldn’t end! These treats just may ease the pain. GOOEY GOOD!
HA! I feel the same way! I wish summer would last MUCH longer!
I seriously cannot believe that Back to School is nearly here! Also, I cannot be trusted around Chex Mix. I devour the bowl every time!
This stuff is so addictive! Thanks for stopping by Erin! 🙂
hmm… I’m not so sure I’m going to let this be the kids’ snack! A nice cup of coffee or tea and I think I’m all set. lol
Does this need to be stored in the fridge or can I keep it in a container and leave it out on the counter?
Well, I just bought some Cheerios today. Now I just need to go back to the store for Chex and Golden Grahams because I NEED to make these asap!
Gooey Chex mix is one of my favorites!
Ours too! Thanks Carrian! 🙂
