Christmas Crack – Yep, I’m addicted!

I always like to make a new cookie, dessert or snack for Christmas. I tried this recipe last year and it is as addictive as drugs! Once you taste it, you’re addicted. One handful leads to another handful and before you know it – the whole bowl is gone and there’s none for anyone else! Yes, I’ve done that with this Christmas Crack Snack! Very tasty.

Christmas Crack Snack


  • 4 cups Corn Chex (about half a box)
  • 4 cups Golden Grahams (about half a box)
  • 2 cups shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup corn syrup

Combine the two cereals, coconut and almonds in a large mixing bowl. In a medium pot, combine the butter, sugar and corn syrup over medium heat. Let cook, stirring constantly, until it reaches the soft ball stage. About 235 degrees F on a candy thermometer.

Pour the sugar mixture over the cereal mixture and stir until well combined. Spread out the Christmas Crack on a cookie sheet and leave for a couple hours until set. It won’t completely dry out, there will be a little stickiness left.

Store in a metal snack tin with a tight fitting lid.
