While the school does the donation method (you give cash to a class pot) I wanted to do something that the kids would be a part of. That's when I decided to make Chex Mix.
The problem was I wanted to keep it nut free so I searched through the Chex Website and came across Snickerdoodle Chex Mix. I personally love Snickerdoodles so I knew this would be the perfect blend of sweet and fun!
I made a few variations to their recipe so here's my version!
2 cups - Chex Rice Cereal
2 cups - Chex Cinnamon Cereal
2 cups - Chex Vanilla Cereal
1 teaspoon - Cinnamon
1/4 cup Sugar
1/4 cup - Butter
Step 1: Mix the cinnamon and sugar together in a bowl
Step 2: Mix all the Chex cereals into a large (microwave safe bowl) 6 cups total
Step 3: Add 1/2 of the cinnamon & sugar combo to the cereal and mix together
Step 4: Warm the butter up in the microwave for about 40-50 seconds
Step 5: Pour the butter over the cereal and mix together
Step 6: Immediately add the rest of the cinnamon & sugar combo and stir together
Step 7: Pop the whole bowl into the microwave for 1-2 minutes
Step 8: Stir it up and let it cool
Step 9: Enjoy or if you're giving it as a gift store it in some cute jars and add a tag!
That's it! So simple the kids are able to help and the only problem I have is keeping their finger out of the mix.
Do you give Chex as a teacher or neighbor gift?
