I am now officially only 1 Chex cereal away from trying all of the gluten-free ones out there now. 🙂 I have a great friend, Lisa, to thank for the Cinnamon Chex. She & I did an exchange. We were both having issues finding certain flavors, so I sent her a box of Strawberry Chex and she, in turn, sent me a box of Cinnamon Chex. The Cinnamon Chex are amazing. I think that they are in first place right now, as far as flavor goes, with Strawberry in second place. Now, I have yet to track down the super-elusive Chocolate Chex yet, so that could bump Cinnamon right out of first place, because we all know how I feel about my chocolate. When I do find the Chocolate Chex, I plan on making the following Chex Mix recipe that I found on the Chex site:
Snickerdoodle Chex® Mix
Start to Finish: 15 Minutes
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups Cinnamon Chex® cereal
2 cups Chocolate Chex® cereal
4 cups popped popcorn
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1. In small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon; set aside. In large microwavable bowl, mix cereals and popcorn.
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.

I don’t think that you could go wrong with this Chex Mix. Maybe, just maybe, when we are on vacation I will happen upon the long lost Chocolate Chex. Wish me luck! 😉
