  • Rice Chex Cereal- 12.8-ounce box
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter 2 sticks
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda


  • Before you begin, place two pieces of parchment paper on two baking sheets and set aside. 
  • Pour the box of Rice Chex Cereal into a large bowl and set aside. 
  • Next, place the butter, light brown sugar, salt, corn syrup in a medium saucepan and place over medium-high heat. 
  • Allow it to boil for about a minute or a minute and a half. The longer you let the caramel mixture boil the harder and crunchier it will become.
  • Remove from the heat and add the baking soda. The mixture will foam a bit, but it will settle down. 
  • Pour the mixture over the Rice Chex Cereal and stir until all the cereal is covered.
  • Next, place the mixture in the microwave for one minute. Remove it and stir. Repeat this process twice more stirring in between each minute. 
  • After the third time you stir it, pour half onto each baking sheet and allow it to cool completely.
  • Break the Caramel Chex Mix apart and store in an airtight container. The Caramel Chex Mix will stay fresh for five days.
