Homemade Chex Mix made with cinnamon and brown sugar
Prep Chex mix in 2-3 large mixing bowls. I like to use 3 most of the time, so it's easier to mix without spillage. Be sure to include equal parts of each Chex cereal variety in each of your bowls.
Mix granulated sugar and other half of cinnamon in a bowl next to your Chex bowls.
Melt butter with brown sugar and half tablespoon cinnamon.
As soon as the brown sugar/cinnamon/butter is melted completely and combined, pour it onto your bowls of Chex. Be careful because the mixture will be very hot. Stir or shake each bowl to combine the melted mixture and add some of the white sugar mixture as well. Mix very well until every piece is coated.
Next, pour each bowl onto a baking sheet covered in parchment paper.
Bake each sheet for 45 minutes at 250 degrees F. This is what makes it toasty and delicious—plus your kitchen will smell amazing!
After you pull it from the oven, sprinkle the top of the mixture with a bit of salt (I use Maldon). You can also add sprinkles at this time if you want.
