HOW TO MAKE THIS PUMPKIN SPICE CHEX MIX RECIPE

STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.

STEP TWO: In an extra-large bowl, mix together Cheerios, Chex mix, pretzels, almond slices, pecans, mini marshmallows, white chocolate chips, cinnamon, and pumpkin spice.

PRO TIP:

When making a Chex mix, make sure to use your largest mixing bowl.

STEP THREE: In a small bowl, whisk together honey, maple syrup, and melted butter.

STEP FOUR: Pour Chex mix on the baking sheet and spread out evenly in a single layer.

PRO TIP:

Try to lay it out in a single layer as best you can so it can cool and harden once baked and not stick together. If you need to speed up the process, you can put your baking sheets in the refrigerator.

STEP FIVE: Drizzle honey syrup over Chex mix and bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven once the marshmallows have started to toast.

STEP SIX: Let Chex mix cool for 5 minutes before placing in a bowl.

PRO TIP:

Don’t overmix once you transfer the mix to the bowl; chunks in this recipe are part of the fun. You also don’t want to break the Chex cereal.

HOW TO SERVE

Enjoy this sweet snack anytime you have the munchies. The delicious pumpkin spice flavor is a great addition to family gatherings during the holiday season. Add a big bowl of this pumpkin pie spice Chex mix treat on the table at Halloween parties, Thanksgiving, or other holiday parties.

Storage

AT ROOM TEMPERATURE: You can store the pumpkin spice snack mix in an airtight container or in gallon size bags. Store at room temperature for up to 3 days.

IN THE FREEZER: Store homemade Chex mix in an airtight plastic bag and place in the freezer for up to 4 weeks.

Any huge fan of pumpkin spice will want to add this to their fall baking list. It is a fun spin on a classic Chex mix, but be warned, once you start, you won’t be able to stop snacking; it is that addictive.
