Pumpkin Spiced Chex Party Mix!


Have I mentioned my obsession with all Pumpkin Spice foods? Have you noticed? I LOVE PUMPKIN SPICED FOODS!!!! I love pumpkin chili, pumpkin coffee's, cookies, cakes, pumpkin fudge (I'll be posting this recipe very soon), pumpkin waffles, pancakes, pumpkin spice syrup, and well, just about any food with pumpkin and pumpkin spice in it...
Here is a new recipe I found and made today...it's pretty awesome, and I will be making it again (because my family had demolished it before I finished cleaning up the kitchen!).
This recipe comes from a magazine ad for Chex Cereals...do not dismiss this one friends!
 ~PUMPKIN SPICED CHEX MIX~
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice 
1/4 c. butter, melted
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. Cinnamon Chex cereal
2 c. Wheat Chex cereal
2 C. Honey Nut Chex cereal
8 oz. pecans, chop if desired (I omitted these-my fam doesn't like nuts. They just ARE nuts...)

In a small bowl combine the brown sugar and pie spice.
In a large microwave safe bowl combine the cereals and pecans, stirring to mix. 
Stir the vanilla extract into the melted butter, then pour butter over cereal, and stir until well coated. 
 Add the sugar mix and stir again until evenly distributed.
Microwave, uncovered for 5 minutes, stirring every minute. 
Spread out on waxed paper to cool. 
 Store in an airtight container.
Beyond simple, ehh? I timed myself, and this LITERALLY took me 11 minutes to make, and 10 minutes for the cereal to cool. This is my kind of cooking!
Happy Happy Happy!
Aren't these the cutest little cups ever?
