holiday crunch

I don't know why my family calls it "Holiday Crunch" but whatever the reason - it's amazing. While we were up at the cabin last weekend, Lela and I renamed it "coconut chocolate sugar crack"... or something. I can't remember the full name but I know it had "crack" in it because this stuff is addicting! It's best made for an event, like a holiday (hence the name), because it makes a lot and tastes so good that you might find yourself eating the whole big bowl yourself. Whether or not you regret that decision is up to you... Enjoy!
6 cups Golden Grahams
6 cups Corn Chex
1 medium bag (about 2 cups) mini m&ms
1/2 cup sliced almonds
3 cups shredded sweetened coconut
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup butter

Mix cereals, coconut, almonds and m&ms together in a large paper grocery bag. Melt butter, sugar and corn syrup in a saucepan over medium high heat. Let boil for 2 minutes. Pour evenly over mixture and stir. Close bag and shake until evenly covered. 


  1. I was introduced to it as "Christmas Crack". :)

  2. My version doesn't have the mini M&Ms but I like that idea. Oh and mine is referred to as "heaven."

  3. I'm so happy I've experienced this- Diane made it for us when we went to the cabin one time! Totally addictive!

  4. That looks lovely. I'll have to try it.

  5. My husbands family makes this every year and call it "hit of the season!"
