Gluten Free Churros

13 Apr

I had to make snack for our ECFE class a few mornings ago so I wanted to try out a new recipe, Churro Chex Snack Mix:

My sister is gluten free and I am always on the lookout for recipes and snacks for her.  Being Gluten Free would be pretty darn difficult and she makes the best of it but I know she misses eating things like churros so I hope this recipe brings back the good ol’ days for her.



9 cups rice Chex cereal
1 cup cinnamon chips
¼ cup butter or margarine
½ cups powdered sugar
¼ granulated sugar
teaspoons cinnamon

SIDE NOTE: I couldn’t find cinnamon chips anywhere so I used this instead and it worked out great (bought this at Target)



In a small microwavable bowl, zap cinnamon chips and butter for 1 minute; stir until smooth. Microwave about 30 seconds longer if needed.

Drizzle mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated.

In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar, sugar, and cinnamon.

Toss the coated Chex cereal into the sugar mixture.

Spread on a piece of parchment until cooled.

I wanted to make it kinda cute for the kiddos so I put the snack mix into a sandwich ziplock bag and separated the middle with a clothes pin to make it look like a butterfly.  I have seen this done on pinterest with google eyes and pipe cleaner antenna.  Got a bit late as I was making these and gladly got out the sharpie to finish off the snack.
