|Cinnamony Iced Chex|
We all know that Chex cereals are so much more than breakfast cereal. Just do a Pinterest search on "Chex" and you'll find dozens of delicious ideas for both sweet and savory versions of Chex mix, bars, and more.
I was craving a cinnamony version of the Happy Chex that I've made before (based on a white chocolate trash snack mix), so I just melted some vanilla chips, added cinnamon and rice Chex and voila! Crunchy, creamy, cinnamony satisfaction. It's like a very sweet and creamy (vs. sandy) take on Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal.
It's super easy, super fast, and just plain tasty.
There you go.
Cinnamony Iced Chex
- 5 cups Rice Chex cereal
- 1 cup white baking chips
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper and set aside.
Create a double boiler by filling a medium or large pot about halfway with water. Place over medium heat and bring water to a simmer.
Place a large metal or glass bowl on top of the simmering water. Place the white baking chips in the bowl over the simmering water. When chips are about 2/3 melted, carefully remove from the pot and stir the chips with a silicone spatula until they are completely melted and smooth.
Add the cinnamon to the melted chips and stir to incorporate.
Add Rice Chex and gently fold until cereal is evenly coated with the cinnamon icing.
Pour coated cereal onto the parchment lined pan and use the silicone spatula and/or a toothpick to separate as many of the Chex as possible. If some stick together, it's not that big of a deal, but try to separate them as much as possible.
Set pan in a cool place until icing has firmed up. Move the cinnamony iced Chex into a gallon size zip top bag, seal, shake a bit to break them up a little more.
Makes about 5 cups
