Onolicious Furikake Chex Mix, a Flexible Sweet-Savory Snack #SundayFunday

Updated: Jan 28

Today the Sunday Funday bloggers are sharing recipes that use corn chips in honor of National Corn Chip Day which is January 29th. So, you haven't missed out. Maybe we will inspire you to grab a bag and try some of our creations.

Stacy of Food Lust People Love, Sue of Palatable Pastime, Rebekah of Making Miracles, and Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm coordinate this low-stress group; we only participate when we are inspired. This week Stacy is hosting.

She wrote: "January 29th is National Corn Chip Day. Let's share recipes our readers might want to make the next day to celebrate. Corn chips include ones like Fritos or any kind of fried tortilla chip, made from blue corn, white corn, yellow corn. Crush them to add to the top of a casserole, or roll your chicken nuggets in them for crunch. Float them on soup or add them to a sandwich. Your corn chip of choice must be used as an ingredient in the recipe, not just to accompany dip or salsa on the side." Here's the #SundayFunday line-up of corn chip recipes...

Onolicious Furikake Chex Mix

Onolicious is an adjective mashup of Hawaiian 'ono' and English 'delicious' - which means delicious delicious. So, really delicious! I love this snack mix and I especially love that the ingredients are sometimes found on end-caps at Hawaiian grocery stores. It is as popular as it is easy to make. Feel free to swap out the cereals for whatever you have available and to add in other favorite crunchies such as nuts or pretzels.


  • 1 box Wheat Chex

  • 1 box Corn Chex

  • 1 box Honeycomb cereal

  • 1 bag Fritos

  • 1/2 cup (I stick) butter

  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/3 cup oil (I prefer a low-flavor oil such as canola)

  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce or tamari

  • 1/2 bottle furikake

  • Also needed: baking sheets, parchment paper


Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

Pour the first four ingredients into a large mixing bowl.

Melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Once melted, whisk in the honey or maple syrup, sugar, oil, and soy sauce. Pour the butter into the hot syrup and whish until well-combined. Pour the syrup over the Chex mix and toss to coat the pieces completely.

Turn the mix out onto the prepared baking sheets. Sprinkle with furikake.

Place in the preheated oven and bake for 1 hour, but take the pan out every 15 minutes to toss. That will allow everything to toast evenly.

Remove from oven and let cool. Keep in airtight containers.

That's a wrap on my corn chip offering. The group will be back next week, sharing recipes for homemade soup. Stay tuned!
