Cashew Crunch - CRAZY good Coconut & Cashew Chex Snack Mix! Sweet & salty in every bite. SO addictive! Cashews, coconut, and Crispix cereal tossed in a sweet brown sugar syrup made from brown sugar, corn syrup, butter, vanilla, and baking soda. Makes a ton. Great for parties and easy homemade holiday gifts. #chex #chexmix #cashews #snack #crispix #coconut #partyfood
In a large bowl, combine cereal, cashews and coconut.
In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, combine brown sugar, corn syrup and butter. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and baking soda. Pour over cereal mixture, tossing to coat evenly.
Pour cereal mixture into a 9x13-inch pan. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 20 minutes.
Pour onto wax or parchment paper to cool. Break into pieces.
Can substitute any variety of Chex cereal for Crispix. This would be some cinnamon Chex cereal!
Feel free to leave out the coconut if you aren't a fan.
This snack mix can be made ahead of time and stored in an air-tight container. I would say it should last at least a week in an air-tight container.
