Chex Pumpkin Pie Crunch Party Mix

I love Chex party mixes and none of the store bought bags compare to the homemade varieties.  And NO MSG or artificial flavors in the homemade versions!

Here is a great one for fall.

Chex® Pumpkin Pie Crunch

Prep Time: 15 Minutes
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups Cinnamon Chex® cereal
  • 2 cups Wheat Chex® cereal
  • 2 cups Honey Nut Chex® cereal
  • 8 oz pecans
  1. In small bowl, mix brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice; set aside. In small microwave-safe dish, microwave butter on High about 30 seconds or until melted. Stir in vanilla. In large microwavable bowl, mix all cereals and pecans. Pour butter mixture over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly distributed. Add sugar and spice mixture and stir until coated.
