Not sure what to make for a gluten-free holiday party? How about some homemade Tropical Island Chex Party Mix? It is seriously tasty and everyone can enjoy it, even someone with a gluten sensitivity.
Chex Mix is one of those things that people with Celiac disease or a gluten intolerance should always have handy. You can have it for cereal or make some delicious party mix with it. This is perfect for keeping around the house for you, or taking it to a party so others can enjoy. Plus, with this snack, you know it is 100% gluten free – so you can eat it, too.
This is an exclusive recipe that I get to share with you for the holidays (or any time of year) for you to enjoy. I hope that you try it and like it as much as my family and I do.
- In large microwavable bowl, mix cereal, coconut, banana chips, tropical fruit mix and nuts.
- In microwavable measuring cup, microwave butter uncovered on high about 30 seconds or until melted. Stir in brown sugar and pineapple juice concentrate. Microwave uncovered on high about 30 seconds or until hot; stir. Pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated. Microwave uncovered on high 6 to 8 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes, until mixture just begins to brown.
- Spread on waxed paper or foil to cool. Store in airtight container.
- Heat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. In ungreased large roasting pan, mix cereal, coconut, banana chips, tropical fruit mix and nuts. In 1-quart saucepan, heat butter, brown sugar and pineapple juice concentrate over medium heat until hot. Pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated. Bake uncovered 30 minutes, stirring after 15 minutes. Spread on waxed paper or foil to cool, about 15 minutes. Store in airtight container.
This is a great recipe for Chex Mix. I will definitely make it again, and share at parties in the future. I would change only one thing with the directions. When it says to add in the tropical fruit mix before heating, I would not. Doing so made the fruits not taste as good, so I’d hold off on adding this until the very end. Otherwise, I love it!
