As you may know I am completing week three of our Spring Pantry Challenge. The freezer has a lot more room in it now that it did three weeks ago! Not only was I interested I using up food from the freezer but I was also using up food from our well-stocked pantry. I found this recipe online, made a few changes and was able to use up some cereal that had been sitting in our cupboard since our college age sons were last home!
I will share the original recipe and indicate the few changes I made. I wasn’t about to purchase any items so I made do with what we had on hand.
Maple Glazed Snack Mix
2 cups Corn Chex Cereal
2 cups Rice Chex Cereal
2 cups Honey Nut Cheerios (I used plain)
1 cup miniature pretzels (omitted used an extra cup of Rice Chex)
½ cup pecan halves, coarsely chopped
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 Tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
In a large bowl, combine the cereals, pretzels and pecans.
In a small microwaves safe dish, combine maple syrup and butter. Cover and microwaves on high for 45 seconds or until the butter is melted. Stir in vanilla.
Pour over the cereal mixture and stir to coat. Transfer the mixture to a 15x10x1 inch-baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 250 degree for 45 minutes stirring every 15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container.
Makes 7 1/2 cups.
