Autumn Chex Mix

autumn chex mix

Are you a breakfast person? I am not. It takes me a few hours of being awake before my stomach can handle food. I go in phases of what I eat. Sometimes its a smoothie, then a granola bar and cheese stick. Right now I am into apples and Chex mix. Crunchy and sweet is working for me right now.

Autumn Chex Mix

Ingredients

  • 4 Cups Chex cereal (I used rice Chex)
  • 2 Cups Oatmeal Squares cereal (I used Cinnamon flavor)
  • 2 Cups pretzels
  • 2 Cups dried cranberries
  • 2 Cups nuts (I used 1 cup salted cashews, 1 cup salted peanuts)
  • 1/2 Cup butter
  • 1/4 Cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 Cup maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla

Instructions

  • In a 5 to 6-quart crock-pot, add the cereal, nuts, dried fruit and pretzels.
  • Melt the butter in a microwave safe cup or bowl. Add in the syrup, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla, stir to combine.
  • Drizzle wet mixture over the dry ingredients and stir well. Take caution to not break the cereal and pretzels. Place a paper towel under the lid to soak up the condensation that can develop inside the lid.
  • Cook on high  for about 2 hours, stirring well every 15 to 20 minutes. Mixture is done when there is no more visible liquid. Cooking temps vary, so keep and eye on your mix after 1 1/2 hours.
  • Pour mixture onto baking sheets and allow to dry for two hours or overnight. Store in a air tight container up to 5 days. Yield: About 8 cups
