Christmas Pretties!

I had so much fun making these. I have been saving crystal light containers all year! They were great for gifts for Hailey's teachers and bus driver and perfect as a neighbors gift! I filled them with a Sticky Chex Mix that is so yummy and so addictive!

In a sauce pan:

1 cup butter

1 cup margarine

2 cups light Karo Syrup

2 cups sugar


Boil for 3 minutes and then add:

2 tsp. vanilla


Pour sauce over:

1 17 oz. Rice Chex

1 17 oz. Crispex

1 14 oz. sweetened coconut

2 cups sliced almonds


If you are just making this for you and your family, you might want to half it...because this recipe makes enough to share!!

Katrina, those are soo cute! You are quite the crafty woman! I think we need to be better friends... ;) I can pull things together but I need inspiration, I'm not good at the inventing part.

Those are darling--and now I want some of your yummy chex mix!

Totally cute! I love your Chex Mix but now that I've seen the ingredient list, I better not make it. My children probably wouldn't eat it and then I would eat WAY too much!
