I've been trying out several different Chex mixes lately. I bought 5 boxes of Chex on sale last week..couldn't pass that up! I guess I never really knew how many varieties that there are...or how many varieties of munchies you can make with them.
I usually make the Original Chex mix and the Sweet and Salty one. My family LOVES that one. You can find the recipe here.
We really liked this one,too! We love pecans, and the maple syrup gives a nice sweetness to the mix. The best part is that a handful really satisfies you...it's a perfect snack for the holidays!
6 c. rice chex
1 c. chopped pecans
1/3 c. butter
1/3 c. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. Maple Syrup
2 tsp. vanilla
Microwave the butter for 30 seconds or until melted. Add the brown sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla. Boil 30 seconds more until boiling. Add the pecan and chex. Stir well and microwave 3 to 4 minutes, stirring every minute. Cool on wax paper.
