Cinnamon Apple Chex Mix

Took this great taste-of-fall snack mix to a picnic this weekend. I love that you can make it entirely in the microwave, no oven required!

Cinnamon Apple Chex Mix

5 cups Wheat Chex® cereal
1 cup lightly salted whole almonds
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup chopped dried apples
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt-covered raisins

In large microwavable bowl, mix cereal and almonds.

In 2-cup microwavable measuring cup, microwave butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and cinnamon uncovered on High about 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute, until mixture is boiling; stir.

Pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated. Microwave uncovered on high 3 minutes, stirring and scraping bowl after every minute.

Stir in apples; microwave uncovered on high about 2 minutes or until apples just begin to brown on edges.

Spread on waxed paper or foil to cool, about 5 minutes. Place in serving bowl; stir in raisins.

Store in airtight container.

I love Chex Mix. I never make it because you have to bake it. This sounds so easy.

Yum! I love all things cinnamon, and it does not help that chex mix is one of my all time favorites. IT'll be trying this. Where do you come up with this stuff? Any ideas for a no-cook snack for the sunday school class I teach, 4-5 year olds?
