Spicy Maple Chex Mix

Yield: 27 cups

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes


  • 9 cups Rice Chex
  • 9 cups Wheat Chex
  • 3 cups mini pretzels or pretzel sticks
  • 6 cups cashews
  • 1 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons sambal oelek or sriracha (you can use more or less depending on how spicy you like it)
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  • Large mixing bowl
  • Saucepan
  • Baking sheets
  • Mixing spoon


Preheat the oven to 275° F. In a large bowl, combine cereal, pretzels and cashews.

In a saucepan, combine butter, maple syrup, soy sauce, and sambal oelek. Bring to a simmer and stir until combined. Pour the mixture over the cereal mix and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper.

Spread the mixture on 3 large rimmed baking sheets (if you don’t have three, just bake it in batches). Bake for about 35 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes, until toasted. Remove from the oven, stir, and let cool completely.
