Tropical Island Chex Mix

This was a really great combination. I did change up the proportions quite a bit. I mean, I understand that Chex wants to highlight their cereal, but I wanted to highlight all the extra yummy ingredients. I reduced the amount of cereal and increased the other stuff.

adapted from Chex

6 cups rice Chex cereal
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup dried banana chips
1 (6 ounce) package dried tropical fruit mix
1 (6 ounce) package dried pineapple pieces
1 (6 ounce) jar macadamia nuts
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup frozen pineapple or orange juice concentrate, thawed

In ungreased large roasting pan, mix cereal, coconut, banana chips, dried fruits and nuts.

In a one quart saucepan, heat butter, brown sugar and juice concentrate over medium heat until hot.

Pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated.

Bake at 300 degrees, uncovered, 30 minutes, stirring after 15 minutes. Spread on waxed paper or foil to cool, about 15 minutes. Store in airtight container.
