Crunchy cinnamon goodness. Seriously, I can not keep my hands off of this stuff! I’m actually eating some as I type this, ha! I really think I might be addicted! I have such a sweet spot for absolutely anything and everything coated in cinnamon sugar. The sweet cinnamon sugar combined with the buttery cereal is so amazing! The butter gives it so much flavor to begin with and after the cinnamon sugar is added.. TOTAL taste bud explosion. When I sent my boyfriend Mike a picture of this when I made it, he freaked out and begged me to save him some for when he got home. When he tried it his reaction was priceless, he loved it! One of his favorite cereals is Cinnamon Toast Crunch so his face totally lit up when he realized that these taste very similar to it! But these are 10x better. These.. theeeeese are just plain delicious.
This chex mix is so easy and will take you literally 5 minutes to make! So easy and so perfect for those last minute “omg! we’re leaving soon and I don’t have anything to bring!” moments. That sure happens to me a lot and this is sure to be a favorite where ever you go! The best part is, if you have the cereal, you most likely have everything else on hand too! Just 4 ingredients: rice chex cereal, salted butter, granulated sugar and cinnamon.
To make this, measure out the cereal in a large bowl. In another small bowl measure sugar and cinnamon. Melt the butter and pour over cereal, stir to completely coat. Microwave for 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute. Then, add cinnamon sugar one half at a time stirring extremely well between each addition. Microwave whole mixture for 1 more minute, stir and turn out on wax paper or paper towels to cool.
How easy is that?! So simple and I’m telling you, once you get a bowl of this in front of you, you will not be able to stop snacking!
Now, Dig in!
