Cinnamon Sugar Chex Mix

Hello there!

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 for 1 minute, toss. Microwave for another minute, toss.
Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over cereal and popcorn and toss well, evenly coating all of it.
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!

Savor it!
love, rue
