Cinnamon-Apple Chex Mix

Who doesn’t love a good Chex mix?  I sure do!  I must say that my favorite part of the traditional Chex mix that my great-grandmother made was the wheat Chex.  Now, I was so excited when I noticed a recipe for cinnamon-apple Chex mix in a Chex ad  in my recent Taste of Home issue. 

The recipe uses just the wheat Chex and has the fabulous fall flavors of apple and cinnamon.  The original recipe called for vanilla-yogurt covered raisins.  I decided to use vanilla-yogurt covered craisins instead.  The other thing I loved about this Cinnamon-Apple Chex Mix recipe is you make it in the microwave and is ready in 15 minutes.

  1. Too funny – Wheat Chex is what I always avoided! I always went straight for the rice (as first choice) then corn chex 🙂

  2. I love Chex Mix too. My mom always used to make it when I was a kid. But, I’ve never seen a recipe for cinnamon-apple chex mix. That sounds divine and so perfect for fall. I’ll have to give this a try.

  3. I think I want to make this for an up coming party, but what do you mean by chopped dried apples? Like apples you’ve dried yourself? maybe this is a silly question.

  4. Oh Chex Mix is the best! My friends and I used to snack on Chex Mix all the time. Each of us liked a different part of the mix, which worked out perfectly! We could each hoard our favorite part and finish off a bowl in no time =]
