You want to talk about disappearing fast. This Harvest Chex Mix was gone in just minutes when Anita took it into the office to share with her co-workers. It’s a wonderful combination of sweet treats, mixed in with cereal, Bugles and pretzels. All coated in a delicious buttery brown sugar coating. You cannot just eat one handful, that’s for sure!
You can pretty much add whatever your autumn favorites are into the Harvest Chex Mix. Just make sure that you let the baked mixture completely first. You don’t want a melty gooey mess!
I used rice Chex for this mix. You can use any of the other varieties instead.
You will need a very large bowl or container as this recipe does make a good-sized batch of mix.
