Favorite Friday Recipe: Furikake chex mix

I have finally come out of my accidental blogging hiatus to bring you this awesome snack mix recipe.  Please note that this is for seaweed lovers only.  Furikake is a mix of seaweed and sesame seeds and can be found at most Asian grocery stores.  It is delicious when eaten with rice and even more so with crispy cereal pieces!  I never got why BK loves chex mix until I tried this mix.  Of course, I'm a huge seaweed fan so that's probably the difference!

Furikake Chex Mix: adapted from this recipe


  • 1/8 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 8 cups cereal/pretzels/etc
  • 1/2 bottle furikake seasoning

  • Melt butter and brown sugar in a saucepan and then add the oil, corn syrup, and soy sauce.  Stir on medium heat until it bubbles and forms a syrup-like texture
  • Measure out 8 cups of cereal (I love Crispix and Honeycomb) or other add ins like pretzels, nuts, bugles in a large bowl
  • Pour the syrup and mix immediately into the cereal
  • Sprinkle furikake and mix more
  • Bake at 200F for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes
  • Try not to eat your weight in Furikake chex mix
