This recipe is super simple and easy, and I actually made it by combining two recipes from the back of cereal boxes- so this is soo not high cuisine, but is delish and a great snack, especially now that the leaves are changing colors and Halloween is almost upon us! I'll have a great Halloween snack/treat for you all next week. But first, let me show you this one...
|Arsenal: popcorn, cereal, butter, cinnamon, and white sugar.|
|Your cereal popcorn mix, cinnamon-sugar, and melted butter. Time to assemble!|
|Pour the butter over and toss well, and gently.|
|Microwave for 1 minute then toss, then repeat.|
|Then sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar and toss well again.|
|Microwave another minute, toss, then another 30 seconds. Toss, then...|
|let cool on waxed paper! You're done!|
Cinnamon Sugar Chex Mix
-2 cups Cinnamon Chex cereal (or similar)
-2 cups Chocolate Chex cereal (or similar)
-4 cups plain, air popped, popcorn (2-4 tablespoons popcorn kernels, unpopped, depending on your brand- you will probably have a little leftover, just save it for the next batch! airtight!)
-1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick), melted
-1/4 cup white sugar + 1 teaspoon cinnamon, mixed
Mix cereals and popcorn together in a large microwaveable bowl.
Pour melted butter over cereal and popcorn and toss well (and gently!).

Microwave 1 minute, toss. Microwave 30 seconds, toss.
Cool on waxed paper. Store airtight. Enjoy!
|All finished and in a cute little tin- great to give away as a little present, but make sure you don't eat it all first! It's a good thing it's easy to make more!|
