Whew. It’s been a long weekend.

A long weekend of devouring this sweet and salty Chex mix every day and every night.

I am obsessed, you guys. There is something so addicting about sweet and salty and cinnamon flavors all in one crunchy snack.

My mama has been dubbed the Chex Mix Queen at my house. Any time we have a get together, she has to bring a big tub of her homemade Chex Mix. It’s so good and it always gets eaten in no time. Maybe we need to request that she brings two tubs next time?

This sweet Chex mix recipe is loaded with cinnamon and sugar! We love this Chex mix recipe!

Sweet Chex Mix is a fun change from the usual.

I loaded this mix up with three varieties of Chex cereals, mixed nuts, and mini pretzels. The sweetness comes from the sauce! You’ll mix together butter, sugar, and cinnamon and drizzle it all over everything and pop it in the microwave, just like a traditional Chex mix.

This is so easy, but it’s such a fun twist on the classic Chex mix recipe and everyone goes crazy for it!

I’m kind of wishing that I’d sprinkled in some white chocolate chips after everything had cooled. Next time, for sure!

Hope you guys enjoy this one.

(Psst. You should check out my dill pickle snack mix too!)
