Cinnamon Churro Chex Mix

At my house we love, Chex Muddy Buddies, or as we call it, Puppy chow.  It's one of those treats I can throw together quickly.  So I almost always have all the ingredients on hand.  When Chex cereal goes on sale, I stock up.

So I had been seeing a few variations around on the internet.  I found this cinnamon version over at The Double Dipped Life and gave it a try.  It was a hit.  We have made it several times.  The recipe calls for cinnamon chips.  If you haven't seen them they are sold next to the chocolate chips.  Most stores carry them now.

If you love cinnamon and sugar.  Make some soon.

Cinnamon Churro Chex Mix

9 cups rice Chex cereal
1 cup cinnamon chips
1/4 cup butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

In a microwavable bowl, cook chocolate chips and butter for 1 minute. Stir until smooth. If the mixture still has some lumps, microwave about 30 seconds longer. Place cereal in a large bowl. Slowly pour cinnamon and butter mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar, sugar, and cinnamon. Sprinkle sugar mixture over cereal and stir gently to coat evenly.  Pour onto a cookie sheet to cool.  It probably won't cool before the eating begins.

I'm Back

What has happened to me this year?

Working on this blog has always been in the back of my mind.  But somehow I've been M.I.A.  I've been busy with some other blogs.  Check out I Heart Salt Lake, the blog about Salt Lake City and surrounding areas that I run with my sister Dianna.  I've also been blogging with Rhodes.  I'll have another Rhodes post soon.  I've also been grilling a ton.  I have a new grilled corn salsa I can't wait to share.  I've also been baking banana bread as soon as the bananas get too ripe.  Sometimes that happens soo fast.  But my son at home doesn't seem to mind too much. I have a new banana bread recipe that I'll be sharing soon.

But I'm ready to get back to posting recipes and fun food stuff here.

Thanks for being patient with me.
