Tropical Island Chex Party Mix

So I am wondering..... do you make Chex Party Mix for the holidays? Did your family when you were younger? As for me, I will admit I love Chex Party Mix and Muddy Buddies. If  I don't have time in my schedule to make some I will pick up a couple of bags at Publix

 I have never tried Tropical Island Chex® Party Mix but this year I am going to give it a try. 
8 cups Rice Chex® cereal 
1 cup shredded coconut, if desired 
1 cup dried banana chips 
1 package (7 oz) dried tropical fruit mix 
1 jar (3 oz) macadamia nuts 
3 tablespoons butter or margarine 
1/4 cup packed brown sugar 
1/4 cup frozen (thawed) pineapple or orange juice concentrate
Pack the brown sugar firmly enough so that it holds the shape of the measuring cup when you tap it out.
Preparation Directions 
1. In large microwavable bowl, mix cereal, coconut, banana chips, tropical fruit mix and nuts. 
2. In microwavable measuring cup, microwave butter uncovered on High about 30 seconds or until melted. Stir in brown sugar and pineapple juice concentrate. Microwave uncovered on High about 30 seconds or until hot; stir. Pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated. Microwave uncovered on High 6 to 8 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes, until mixture just begins to brown. 
3. Spread on waxed paper or foil to cool. Store in airtight container.
