Halloween Sugar Cookie Chex Mix

Who doesn't love Chex Mix?   There are so many varieties----sweet, salty, spicy----something to satisify every tastebud!

Have you ever visited the Chex website?  Look at all the recipes

It's Halloween Party Time in my kids' classes, so today I made this Halloween Sugar Cookie Chex Mix for them to bring and share with their friends.

I began with the recipe for Sugar Cookie Chex from the Chex website.   I adapted it by adding some candy corn, Multigrain Cheerios, mini pretzels, and Halloween sprinkles.   I think the kids will like it!

Here's my adapted recipe:

Halloween Sugar Cookie Chex Mix

2 cups Chex cereal
2 cups Multigrain Cheerios
2 cups mini pretzels
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons corn syrup
2 teaspoons pure vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 ounces white candy coating
1 bag candy corn
3 Tbsp. Halloween sprinkles

Measure Chex, Cheerios, and pretzels and pour into a large bowl. Preheat oven to 275 degrees.  Spray a large cookie sheet with nonstick spray.

In a small saucepan, melt butter, sugar, and corn syrup.  Over medium heat, bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and baking soda.  Pour over dry ingredients.  Stir gently.

Pour onto cookie sheet.  Bake for 15 minutes, remove from oven and stir gently, and bake for another 15 minutes.

Pour snack mix onto a large sheet of wax paper on your countertop.  Distribute candy corn over top of snack mix.  Sprinkle powdered sugar over top and stir gently.  Melt white chocolate in a small microwave safe bowl and drizzle over snack mix.  Sprinkle the Halloween sprinkles over the melted chocolate.  Cool completely.  Gently bread apart.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar again if desired.  Store in an airtight container.
