Chex Mix is a classic snack because of its versatility. While the original savory snack is a winner, we have seen dozens of “re-mixes” on the cereal-based munchies. There’s the Dill Pickle Ranch mix, the “Frozen”-inspired Puppy Chow and the festive Cupcake Chow, just to name a few of our favorites. But now that it’s September, we have pumpkin spice fever and are ready to mix things up again with this popular snack.
Luckily, there’s a Chex Mix recipe that ticks all the fall flavor boxes: sweet, salty and, of course, perfectly pumpkin!
Jenn, the blogger behind Princess Pinky Girl, shared her recipe for Pumpkin Spice Snack Mix, and we can’t wait to stir some up and dig in. In her post, Jenn said she created the recipe because she was on the lookout for a snack mix to bring with her on a road trip but couldn’t seem to find one that hit the right mark. So she decided to make her own!
This Pumpkin Spice Snack Mix combines a few of the classic party mix ingredients (primarily the cereal and pretzels) and adds everything you’d want to make it a fall season snack staple.
Some of the ingredients included in her recipe include Honey Nut Chex cereal (though you can choose your own favorite flavor), Caramel Bugles, pretzels, brown sugar, butter, pumpkin pie spice and butterscotch M&M’s.
However, the thing that gives this snack mix its seasonal flair is the addition of Brach’s Autumn Candy Mix, which includes those adorable candy pumpkins and candy corn. Yes, some people can’t stand candy corn, but this recipe creator said it blends well with this savory seasonal mix.
The recipe’s step-by-step instructions, including photos, are easy to follow. In just about an hour (including baking time for some of the ingredients and 10 minutes of prep), you’ll be ready to crunch away on this snack that blends the warm spices of fall with the sweetness of Halloween candy!
