Honey Nut Chex® cereal
Because I'm kind of low on ingredients, I improvised a little. I used all Rice Chex minus about a cup and a half so I could sub in a cup and a half of pretzles. No pecans on hand, so I omitted them. I did use Splenda brown sugar blend. This turned out nicely, though the pumpkin pie spice was a little overpowering. Next time, I might only use a teaspoon and a half or so instead of a whole tablespoon. Next time, I'd like to try this with a little Goldfish grahams thrown in.
not much pumpkin flavor, mostly just lightly spiced
I made this and took to work. It didn't last one day. My only change was that I couldn't find Cinnamon Chex so I used Cinnamon Toast Crunch and it was a big hit.
I have made this several times in the past few months and it is always a hit. The first time I forgot the vanilla but the flavor was so wonderful, I have not added it since. Wanting to double the recipe without too much of the same cereal, I added 2 cups each of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Golden Grahams and Snyder's regular "Snaps" pretzels. The Snaps are a great addition, the little squares in the pretzel hold the sugar/spice mixture perfectly and the salt gives a nice contrast. Just because of the large amount I was making, I baked the mix in a large roasting pan at 250 degrees for 1 hour stirring every 20 minutes...then let cool completely. Wonderful!!
I first tried this at work. We fought over the bowl! I followed the directions except I added a little more brown sugar-I like the sweetness! This is way better than any other Chex Mix I have tried. You have to try this!
I have been trying a different Chex Mix each week, and so far, this is a favorite. I sent a batch up with my daughter while she was watching tv and she gave me an empty bag back. This is a nice option to the traditional Chex Mix. Great flavor - just the right sweetness.
I couldn't find cinnamon chex, so I used Cinnamon Toast Crunch like some other reviewers. I also discovered too late that I only had about 1/2 tsp. vanilla, so I added 1/2 tsp. almond extract. This is dangerous!
Yummy!!! I coud not find the Cinnamon Chex so I used two cups Wheat Chex and 4 cups Honey Nut Chex. I have tried other Chex Mixes and did not care for them, but this was wonderful. A friend made this for our Halloween party so I asked her for the recipe.
