Cereal Snack Mix


There’s so many ways to make a snack mix with cereal.   This is a good after school snack or toddler snack.  They still get the fiber, protein, and whatever vitamins and minerals are in the cereal.   Here’s a way to make a sweet one.

Cereal Snack Mix


  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons margarine or butter
  • 3 Tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 cups one kind of cereal (these should be bite- sized cereal like Chex or Cheerios)
  • 4 cups of another cereal
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup pretzels, optional
  • 1/2 cup honey roasted peanuts, optional


  1. 1. Cover cookie sheet with waxed paper. Microwave brown sugar, butter and honey in microwavable bowl, uncovered on high 1 minute, stir, if the butter is not melted, put it in the microwave for another minute. Stir in baking soda until dissolved.
  2. Place cereals and optional pretzels/peanuts in a large bowl, add melted butter mixture. Microwave one minute, stir, microwave another minute, stir, microwave one more minute and stir again. Spread on a cookie sheet to cool for 10 minutes. Break it up into bite sized pieces.
  3. Microwave chocolate chips in a small bowl to melted and smooth. (If its too thick to drizzle, put it in a baggie and cut off the corner for drizzling) Drizzle on cereal pieces.
  4. Refrigerate half an hour to set chocolate. Store in an airtight container.

My chocolate is a little too clumpy, that’s why I added the baggie suggestion in the recipe.
