This is another one of those recipes I jotted down while sitting at the hospital with my niece. I don't know what magazine it came from. If someone knows, I'll add the credit to the recipe. It is an easy, slightly sweet twist on what we call "Party Mix" around here.
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 T. pumpkin pie spice
1/4 cup butter
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups Cinnamon Chex cereal
2 cups Wheat Chex cereal
2 cups Honey Nut Chex cereal (I couldn't find this and used Corn Chex instead)
8 oz. pecans
In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice. Melt the butter and add the vanilla. Mix all three cereals together with nuts, pour butter/vanilla over and sprinkle on sugar/spice mixture. Toss gently. Microwave about 4-5 minutes, spread on cookie sheet to cool.
Note: I have a powerful microwave. I set it for 5 minutes and I had a few burned pieces. I would try 4 minutes but watch it closely. It isn't good burned!
