I used both mango and pineapple, because I had both on hand. Just one caution. The bowl started smoking a little at about 3 minutes, and I think the mix would have burned at 4. After adding the coconut and dried fruit, I micro'd for another 30 seconds, and it was perfectly browned. Everybody's microwave is different, so just keep your eye on it. This is a sweet snack mix bursting with flavor. This will be enjoyed during the Holidays, and I definitely will make again.

My boys and I especially like sweet cereal mixes, and this one's pretty tasty! We subbed seeds for the almonds (nut allergies), and left the ginger out.

My sister's Gluten Free and was craving something sweet. She loves Apples and Cinnamon so I decided I'd make this mix for her. It was pretty simple to make- not AS easy as others where you just pour the liquid over top and you're done-- but still it only took me maybe ten minutes to put together. I suggest to cut back on the ginger. I put in just as much ginger in as the recipe called for, and the ginger taste when you're done is overpowering. I even added a teaspoon of cinnamon halfway through microwaving the honey/brownsugar/butter/ginger mixture because I could tell how strong the ginger would be. Also, I agree with the previous reviewer that it's not necessary to microwave a full 4 minutes plus an additional minute. I microwaved it four 3 minutes and 30 seconds before adding the coconut and pineapple, then once I added that I microwaved it for an additional 45 seconds. In the end the Chex Mix had a nice satisfying crunch with a very ginger-y taste. If you're not a big fan of ginger, just use cinnamon or apple pie spice or nutmeg instead- since that's all you'll really taste.
