Fall Snack Mix

I made this for a playdate and I thought it was a great combination of sweet, salty, and crunchy.  My kids basically enjoyed picking the marshmallows and M&M's out of it!


Recipe Notes
The original recipe doesn't specify which type of Chex cereal.  I used corn Chex here and it worked out well.

  • 6 c. Chex cereal
  • 1 c. pretzel rods
  • 6 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1/4 c. brown sugar
  • 1 c. marshmallows
  • 1 c. M&M's
  • 1 c. candy corn
1.  Stir butter and brown sugar until well-combined.
2.  Place Chex cereal and pretzels in a large bowl.  Pour butter and brown sugar mixture over cereal and pretzels.  Toss gently until cereal and pretzels are coated.
3.  Bake on a foil-lined jelly roll pan for 20 minutes at 275 degrees.  Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
4.  Combine cereal, pretzels, marshmallows, M&M's, and candy corn in a large bowl.  Serve and enjoy!  Stores well in a glass jar with a tight seal.
