Caramel Cinnamon Chex Mix

Caramel Cinnamon Chex Mix is the best holiday or move night treat. They are so easy to make and taste delicious. It comes together in a matter of minutes, and is definitely a new family favorite at our house.

The 4th of July is one of my most FAVORITE holidays. We all try and get the whole family together. As sisters we have certain traditions that we do every 4th.

First the parade, then we run over to the fair (we mostly go for the meat skewers). Once we get too hot, Grandma blows up her big water slide and the kids play while the adults talk and play games.

After the kids dry off we have a big BBQ and get ready for the fireworks. The fireworks aren’t exactly my favorite, but I love the “before the fireworks” time.

We pack a lot of snacks, bring card games, and get ready to people watch. (I could people watch all day.)

We can always count on my Mom bringing delicious treats while we wait for them to start. This year, I’m going to add treat bowl with this Caramel Cinnamon Chex Mix.

It is SO good and perfect for kids and adults. Happy Independence Day everyone.

I served mine in individual baggies and it made it so much easier while we were on the go.

could this recipe be made in a microwave?

This recipe would be extremely difficult to make in a microwave. We do not recommend it.

We make it over the stove, because you need to be constantly stirring the mixture.

We highly recommend using the stove top to make this recipe, for the best results.

could i make this recipe using a different cereal?

You could most definitely make this recipe, using a different cereal. We recommend using Chex Mix, for the best results but here are a few of our other favorite cereal combinations, with this recipe:

-Golden Grahams
-Frosted Flakes
-Rice Krispies
-Frosted Cheerios

You could really use any plain cereal with this recipe, but again, for the best results, we highly recommend using Chex Mix.

  1. I CANNOT thank you enough for this recipe, it's my absolute favorite snack and I'm hopelessly addicted to it and I didn't have to beat it out of my friend who wouldn't give me the recipe lol I figured out why hers was slightly different, she doubles the syrup and it makes them chewy!. I have made this probably 20 times since I first wrote in, thank you soooooo much!

    I didn’t have good results with the butter sugar corn syrup boiling for 1 min. It finished very hard. Then stirring into the Chex mix it hardened and broke down the Chex mix. Wondering how this is gonna work, I still put in oven or the 5 then 3 mins. Which I think make the base even harder like a hard crack candy. Then all that sugar on top was way to much and left a texture like gravel after in the oven. My family won’t eat it we tried several times for fun but can’t. I’ll have to throw it out. If I made it again (probably won’t) I would adjust many many things. I do have a gas stove but timed 1 min. So be careful with the boil. Or skip half the the oven time. Lower oven temp!!! Cut the sugars in half or add more Chex. Also skip the corn syrup to keep it from a hard crack.
