Chex Mix Munch
Foodbuzz and Duncan Hines sent me coupons to try Duncan Hines' Amazing Glaze. I wanted to think outside the box and not do the traditional cakes or cookies so I decided to make a Chex mix. With the holiday season coming up as well as those Sunday football game gatherings, this makes a delicious yet fiber filled snack. And it's simple. Here is all you need to do.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large baking dish with sides mix 3 cups each of wheat, rice and corn chex. Add a cup of broken pretzels, 1 cup of nuts (more if you like a lot of nuts) and 1 10oz. pkg of Bugles. Bake for about 15 minutes or until the cereal is hot, stirring about every 5 minutes. Just before taking the cereal from the oven, heat your Amazing Glaze as directed on the package. Immediately after removing from the oven drizzle about 1/2 the chocolate and 1/2 of the vanilla glaze over the hot cereal. Using 2 large spoons, toss well to keep the cereal from clumping. Makes one really large popcorn bowl full of delicious munch!
Comments - Of course you can make changes. You can change up the cereal, change up the nuts, I used peanuts but pecans, walnuts or even mixed nuts would be good. I also used salted peanuts for the salty sweet taste. You can add more or less glaze depending upon your own taste. And what do you do with the left over glaze? Cookies, cakes, cupcakes or make more Chex Mix Munch. Always Think With Your Taste Buds!
