RECIPE: Double Chocolate Caramel Chex Mix

choco chex

We all have the recipe for the classic savory Chex Mix, but did you know there are SWEET versions, too? This Double Chocolate Caramel Chex Mix is super rich; in fact, it’s so decadent that you can easily skip the white chocolate drizzle and candy add-ins as they may be too much for some people. I myself prefer to leave those two ingredients out as the mix is sweet enough without them.



  • 8 cups (1 box) Chocolate Chex Cereal
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 3 tablespoons of light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chips (optional)
  • 1 cup M&M’s (optional)


  1. Pour cereal into large microwaveable bowl.
  2. Line a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan with wax paper.
  3. In a microwaveable bowl, mix together the brown sugar, butter/margarine and corn syrup. Cook on high for 1 minute. Stir. Cook on high for another minute.
  4. Remove the mixture from the mirowave and add in the baking soda, stirring until it dissolves.
  5. Pour mixture over the cereal and stir to coat. Microwave for 3 minutes, stirring after every minutes.
  6. Spread cereal mixture onto the wax paper. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  7. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave. Remove mix from fridge and drizzle with the melted white chocolate. Return to fridge for 20 minutes.
  8. Remove mix from the fridge and break into bite-size pieces. Store in an air-tight container.
