Secret’s out! Combine butter and sugar with Chex™ cereal; microwave, and you have a yummy made-in-minutes party mix.


  • 6 cups Rice Chex™ cereal
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp water
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 oz white baking chocolate (or 1/4 cup white vanilla baking chips)
  • 1-2 tsp gluten-free colored edible glitter or sugar sprinkles


  1. In large microwavable bowl, measure cereal; set aside. Line cookie sheet with waxed paper or foil.
  2. In 2-cup microwavable measuring cup, microwave butter uncovered on High 30 seconds or until melted. Add granulated sugar and water; microwave uncovered on High 30 seconds or until mixture is heated and can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour over cereal, stirring until evenly coated.
  3. Microwave uncovered on High 4 minutes, stirring every minute, until thoroughly glazed. Sprinkle with powdered sugar; mix well.
  4. Spread on cookie sheet. In small microwavable bowl, microwave white chocolate uncovered on High 30 to 60 seconds, or until it can be stirred smooth. Place in small resealable food-storage plastic bag; cut off small corner of bag. Squeeze bag to drizzle white chocolate over snack mix; sprinkle with edible glitter. Cool until white chocolate is set, about 10 minutes.
  5. Techniques: For an easy and even way to apply the powdered sugar, pour sugar into large resealable freezer bag. After removing cooked snack mix from microwave, let stand in bowl 1 to 2 minutes to cool, then pour into bag and shake!
  6. Healthy: Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
