my maple nut snack mix

Have you ever poked around the General Mills website and seen how many recipes there are for Chex Mix? Sweet, salty, savory, chocolate and even gluten free. There must be 100 different types! Of course, everyone has had the original recipe and I’m betting that if you have kids then you have made Muddy Buddies. (chocolate and powdered sugar) That was a favorite when my kids were young. It was the standard treat which they all loved to take to school on their birthdays.

This is a combo I stumbled upon when I mixed a few suggestions from standard recipes and the ingredients from my pantry. I’d say it’s the new favorite of my kids who have grown past the powdered sugar phase. Enjoy.

Here’s what you need:
3 C honey O’s cereal
3 C rice chex shape cereal
2 C fish shaped pretzels or butter flavored pretzels (extra yummy)
1 C pecan halves
2 T sesame seeds
½ C real maple syrup
½ stick real butter

Here’s what you do:
Mix the snack ingredients. Melt the syrup and butter. Pour over dry ingredients and mix well with two huge spoons.

Turn out onto a greased baking sheet. Bake 250 degrees for 40 minutes.

Have you ever tried the Buffalo Chex Mix snack? It’s super spicy!
