Snickerdoodle Chex Mix

The original recipe is posted here, but we didn't think much of the popcorn in the mix, and my husband doesn't like chocolate (I know, weird), so we created our own recipe:

1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 cups Cinnamon Chex® cereal
2 cups Honey Chex
1/2 c pecans or almond halves
1/4 cup butter or margarine

The cinnamon and sugar mixture blends in more evenly when it's sprinkled on the cereal mixture a half at a time.

1. In small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon; set aside. In large microwavable bowl, mix cereals and nuts.
2. In 1-cup microwavable measuring cup, microwave butter uncovered on High about 40 seconds or until melted. Pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated.
3. Microwave uncovered on High 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute. Sprinkle half of the sugar mixture evenly over cereal mixture; stir. Sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture; stir. Microwave 1 minute longer. Spread on waxed paper or paper towels to cool. Store in airtight container.

In my opinion: I really liked these! There are so many new flavors to choose from, I can't wait to try them all.
