This Fall Chex Mix is to Die For

Sharing is caring!

I am so ready for fall. Cooler temperatures, yummy recipes, and fall treats!

I have to say I have a lot of favorite things about fall. Cooler weather is probably number one because it gets hot here in Texas, but aside from that fall is a big season change. I love to see the colors of the leaves change and make my favorite foods that I wouldn’t normally make during the hotter summer months.

On the weekends we usually have a range of good snacks and such and I thought in honor of the cooler weather that is upon us we would make this fall chex mix recipe that is to die for! Let me show you just how easy this recipe is and it stores really well to for a sweet snack later!

You will need this for the mix:

You will need this for the glaze topping:

Preheat your oven to 275 degrees. Melt the butter in the microwave. Whisk the melted butter with the brown sugar and vanilla.

In a large bowl add in your mixin’s EXCEPT for your M&M’s and candy corn mix. Pour the glaze on top and mix well.

Put your glazed fall mix on a cookie sheet, you may need more than one, and pop it in the oven for 35-45 minutes. Give it a mix every now and then.

Once it is done remove it from the oven and allow it to cool off. Once cooled throw it back in a bowl and add in your candy pieces. Mix it well.

Does this not look delish! Store it in a container or sealed bag to maintain freshness.
