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|
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.
