Cinnamon Chex Snack Mix

i like any of the snack mixes made with Rice Chex or Corn Chex. Chex even makes and sells some great combinations themselves now. i saw this recipe for a toasted cinnamon snack mix and couldn’t resist. It’s nice to have these around during the holidays to munch on when we’re okaying games and drinking beverages.

I bought some Rice Chex and started making the mix. I stirred the cinnamon and sugar together in a bawl and set it aside.

I melted the butter in a bowl in the microwave, stirred in the brown sugar, then microwaved it again. I stirred the mixture until the brown sugar had dissolved and it was sort of a caramel sauce.I poured the caramel over the rice cereal I’d placed in a large bowl. I stirred quickly to get all the the pieces covered.

Next I spread the coated cereal onto a parchment paper covered baking sheet. I used a spatula to get it spread out thinly, then sprinkled it with the cinnamon sugar.

Into the oven it went. I set a timer for 45 minutes. I set another timer for 15 minutes so I could stir and turn it regularly.

When the mix was finished I let it cool before pouring it into a zippered storage bag. I was ready for game time!

We enjoyed the simple mix. So much flavor using very basic ingredients. The bonus was that Rice Chex was on sale that week and so it was a an inexpensive treat as well.

Note: this was so popular with my P.S. that he took it downstairs to his office and it never returned. Will make it more often!
