A sweet version of Chex Mix.

Top Review by LonghornMama

Really yummy sweet, crunchy snack with lots of flavor from fall spices. Decided today was the day I'd clear out random cereal from my pantry. Found this recipe online at, glad to find it posted here. Used mostly honey nut chex and about a cup of cinnamon Cheerios instead of cinnamon Chex. Only had 1 cup marshmallows, so that's all I added. Would be good with some dried apple pieces or cranberries added, too. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
