Test Kitchen Tip

If you want to double the recipe, make sure to bake the Chex mix on two baking sheets.


Preheat oven to 325°. Line a baking sheet with foil; coat with nonstick spray.

Combine Chex, Cheerios, and peanuts in a bowl.

Microwave sugar, butter, honey, and water in a 2-cup glass measuring cup, on high for 30-second intervals, until melted and smooth, 2 minutes, stirring after each interval. Stir in baking soda until dissolved; pour over cereal mixture and stir until evenly coated. Transfer Chex mix to prepared baking sheet.

Bake Chex mix, stirring every few minutes, until cereal begins to brown, 10 minutes. Let Chex mix cool 10 minutes before stirring in pretzels and chocolate. Season Chex mix with salt; store in an airtight container.
