Snickerdoodle Chex Mix

A sweet spin on the usual Chex Mix.

I noticed this on the side of the Cinnamon Chex cereal box, and I knew we had to try it.

(After looking high and low for Chocolate Chex to no avail, I substituted Annie's Chocolate Bunnies.)

Start with 2 cups of the Cinnamon Chex.
(Use a large microwavable bowl.)

Make a mixture of sugar and cinnamon.

I used these Chocolate Bunny Grahams.

Add 2 cups to the bowl.

Then toss in 4 cups of popcorn...

 And mix well.

 Melt half a stick of butter, and add to the cereal-popcorn mix. 
Stir well.

Then, microwave the mixture for two minutes,
stirring after one minute.

Microwave another minute and add the cinnamon sugar mixture.

Microwave for another minute.

Then let cool on a waxed paper.

Happy snacking!

Mmmm, looks good! And Annie's makes those little chocolate bunnies in a GF version, so it could be totally gluten-free. Love that cinnamon chex!

Oh I miss cereal so much!! this looks incredibly fabulous. I want to lick the screen ! Unfortunately all the GF cereals have corn in them which I can't do either. Sad:( but I did make a GF version of your homemade granola with faux butter too and it turned out really good actually... i just ate it all up too fast and didn't make a large enough batch cuz i want to ration my $6 a bag GF oats.
