Day 5–Something Warm & Tasty

This mix has become of somewhat of an expected tradition at my workplace.  When I first started in my division, at Christmastime, I brought bags of Praline Chex mix for all of the guys and women I work with.
It’s become a tradition to the point of being told if I ever leave, they’ll expect a box full shipped at Christmastime. LOL

It’s an easy and oh, so yummy Chex mix.  I’ve made it for so many years, I can’t remember where I initially got the recipe but I’ll share it anyway.


Can you see all the brown sugar and butter gooey-ness ?   Smile oh, yeah, it’s there!  It’s really tasty when it’s warm right out of the oven. mmmm!

Praline Chex Mix
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 cups Rice Chex
2 cups Corn Chex
2 cups Wheat Chex
2 cups pretzels
1 cup pecans (I usually use mixed nuts)

Bring brown sugar & butter to a boil and boil for 2 minutes. (I use the microwave).
Mix together the cereal, pretzels and nuts.
Pour brown sugar syrup over the cereal mixture.
Pour onto a greased jelly roll pan and bake at 350 for approx. 8 minutes, stirring halfway through.

You’ll love it but be careful, it’s addicting!
Let cool and store in an airtight container.  This freezes well too.


  1. I made a Christmas chex mix over the weekend and will probably post it today...soon as I get myself organized!! Yours sounds good-I love the salty/sweet combo.

  2. Ohhh, I want some! I love this and remember the first time you brought it to work! I'm surprised that any of mine made it home for Ray to try! I've used your recipe many times - Thanks! ~Jeanne

  3. Hi Lori -
    Thanks for stopping by and I'm glad you found me by accident through Jamie. I'm rather new at this blogging thing but I find it fun and I'm getting some practice with my camera. Your photo challenge looks interesting. I can't wait to check out more of your blog after work. BTW, your chex mix looks so good and beautiful house picture in your header.
