Chex cereal, pretzels, and mochi tossed in a sweet and savory furikake seasoning and crushed red pepper. This spicy furikake chex mix is the perfect snack.
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup corn or vegetable oil
  • ½ cup corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 6 cups Chex rice cereals
  • 5 cups mini pretzels
  • 4 cups mochi nuggets or rice crackers
  • 1 bottle 1.9 ounce nori furikake rice seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons crushed red peppers
  1. Preheat the oven to 225F.
  2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. Melt the butter and granulated sugar in a small pot over low heat. Once the sugar has melted, remove from heat and mix in vegetable oil, corn syrup, and soy sauce until well incorporated.
  4. Place Chex cereal, mini pretzels, and mochi bites into a large mixing bowl. Pour the butter mixture over the cereal mixture and tossed until well coated. Pour the whole bottle of furikake seasoning into the mixing bowl then add crushed red peppers. Toss until all the cereal is covered in the seasoning.
  5. Divide cereal mixture onto the baking sheets. Bake the snack mix for about an hour or until the cereal is dry. Remove the Chex mix from the oven every 15 minutes and toss to prevent the cereal from browning too quickly or becoming burnt. Ovens sometimes have hot spots.
  6. Let the furikake chex mix cool before placing them into airtight containers.
  7. Serve the spicy furikake chex mix as a snack or you can give them as gifts.
