Ah Cinnamon. Ah Chex Mix. Ah CHURROS.
I knew when I saw this recipe on the ever lovely Pinterest I knew I had to eventually make it. I made two major alterations to her original recipe.
This recipe is fast and yummy. The hardest part of this recipe is simply finding the cinnamon chips. Once you find yourself some of those, well my friends a Churro-riffic, snack-tastic treat of epic proportions is soon yours.
Enjoy. We sure did!
Cinnamon Churro Chex Mix
adapted from this pin
9 cups rice Chex cereal
3 cups cinnamon chips
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Pour Chex cereal into a bowl. Set aside. Combine sugars and cinnamon in another small bowl. Set aside.
In a microwavable bowl, melt the cinnamon chips. Heat for 1 minute then stir. Heat for an additional 30 seconds. Stir. Continue with additional 30 seconds until completely melted. Pour melted cinnamon chips over the cereal. Stir until cereal is well coated.
Sprinkle with half of the cinnamon sugar mixture. Toss to coat. Pour out the cereal onto a cookie sheet. Continue to sprinkle and toss the cereal with the rest of the cinnamon sugar mixture.
Now go ahead and snack away!
