Chex® Apple Cinnamon Fruity Snack Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2013
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.
