Caramel Chex


  • 2 cups of Dutch Farms® butter
  • 2 small boxes of Chex Cereal
  • 2 cups of brown sugar
  • ½ cup Light Karo syrup
  • ½ tsp Vanilla
  • ½ tsp Baking Soda
  • Optional: candy of your choice!


  • Melt the 2 cups of Dutch Farms® butter in a sauce pan.
  • Add the brown sugar and bring to a boil.
  • Add the baking soda, vanilla and Light Karo syrup to the sauce pan and stir.
  • Put the cereal in a large bowl, or two if it doesn’t all fit in one.
  • Pour the caramel mixture over the cereal and stir coating all of the cereal.
  • You will then take the mixture and pour into a brown paper bag.
  • Take the paper bag of Caramel Chex mix and microwave for 1-2 minutes and shake.
  • Microwave again for 1 more minute and shake.
  • Then take the Caramel Chex and spread onto wax paper and let cool.
  • The mixture may clump together but once it cools you can break it apart and it is ready to eat!
  • Once the Caramel Chex is cooled you can mix in your favorite candy as well. We chose candy corn for our fall goodie bags!
  • Enjoy
