Campfire Chex Mix

Think back on your childhood memories of summer nights sitting around a crackling campfire — can’t you just taste those cinnamony grahams, melty chocolate, and marshmallows? We wanted to recreate nostalgic s’mores flavors in a portable, snackable party mix — so we teamed up with Chex® to make this sweet and indulgent Campfire Chex® Mix that takes the concept over the top. Clusters of crispy Cinnamon Chex® cereal coated with a caramelly crunch, studded with mini peanut butter cups and marshmallows, and drizzled with white and milk chocolate make this one mind-blowing mix.





Campfire Chex Mix
Prep: 10 Mins | Total: 20 Mins
Serves: 24
Difficulty: Easy
Ingredients
8 Cups Cinnamon Chex Cereal
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar, packed
6 Tablespoons Butter
3 Tablespoons Light Corn Syrup
8 oz Mini Peanut Butter Cups
1 Cup Mini Marshmallows
1/2 Cup Caramel Candies
1 Tablespoon Heavy Cream
1/2 Cup Milk Chocolate Chips
1/2 Cup Vanilla Chips
Directions
Line a sheet pan with parchment paper, set aside. Measure the Cinnamon Chex into a large microwave-safe bowl, and set it aside.
Combine the butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup in a 2-cup microwave-safe measuring cup. Microwave on high for 1 minute, stir, and heat for another minute, or until the sugar is melted and smooth. Stir until fully blended. Pour the mixture over the Cinnamon Chex and gently stir until the cereal is evenly coated.
Microwave the coated Chex on high for 3 minutes, stirring every minute. Pour the mixture onto the prepared sheet pan, spread it out evenly, and let it cool for 10 minutes.
Sprinkle the mini peanut butter cups and mini marshmallows evenly over the top of the cereal.
In a small, microwave-safe bowl, combine the caramel candies and heavy cream. Heat on high for 1 minute and stir until fully blended. Drizzle the melted caramel sauce over the top of the candy and marshmallows. Repeat with the chocolate and vanilla chips. Refrigerate until the mix is set. Break into pieces and store in an airtight container.

The thing we love about Chex® Mix is that it makes party prep so quick and easy — you can have this one ready in just 20 minutes. Plus, you gotta love a dessert recipe that doesn’t monopolize your oven space while you’re cooking other party food, since it’s made entirely with the microwave.

No one will be able to walk by a bowl of your Campfire Chex® Mix without grabbing a handful or two, whether you’re passing this mix around a campfire, a party, or just across the couch on movie night. (And when we say passing around, we mean fighting over — because these are kid-friendly flavors that will turn even adults who “aren’t that into sweet stuff” into a bunch of bowl-hogging kids.)
