Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
  2. In a medium sauce pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Whisk in the sugar, soy sauce, maple syrup, and vegetable oil until well-combined. Remove from the heat, set aside and let cool.
  3. Divide the cereals and snacks into two large baking trays lined with foil or parchment paper.
  4. Evenly pour the syrup over the two trays and toss with the mix to thoroughly coat.
  5. Evenly sprinkle in the entire jar of Furikake seasoning and mix well.
  6. Bake in the oven for one hour, taking the pans out every 15 minutes to mix, to make sure it cooks evenly. 
  7. Remove from the oven and let cool before serving.

Notes

  • Make sure to toss the Chex mix thoroughly with the syrup so everything is coated well before baking.
  • I used two large baking trays for this recipe, but you can use two deep aluminum pans as well. Just make sure to toss the mixture every 15 minutes while baking.
  • If you're not serving this Furikake Chex Mix right away, you can store it in a tightly sealed container for up to two to three weeks.
