Yes — I have a bit of an obsession with holiday Chex Mixes these days!
This Apple Pie Chex Mix combines some of our favorite flavors of the season into an easy-to-go snack that isn’t terribly unhealthy despite it’s delicious taste. It looks great in a canning jar with a ribbon tied round the neck, but you’ll want to make it fresh and hand it out to neighbors and teachers right away because it won’t last long once you taste it!
- 3 cups Corn Chex cereal
- 3 cups Rice Chex cereal
- 1 cup walnut pieces
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 2 cups dried apples coarsely chopped
- 1 cup white chocolate baking chips
Preheat oven to 250°F.
In large bowl, combine cereal and nuts. Add butter to a 9×13 pan and put in oven to melt. Once melted, stir in sugar and spices until well mixed. Add cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated.
Continue baking for one hour, stirring regularly.
Remove from oven and immediately add apples and white chocolate baking chips. Stir until the chips melt and coat the mixture. Let cool. Store in an airtight container in the pantry.
