I’m loving our cooler fall weather in Texas! This time of year I feel so inspired to create in the kitchen. This Sweet Cashew Cheerios Snack Mix is one that Grace first made when she was little and everyone was crazy about it! We still are! It’s perfect for a fun movie night snack.
What you need:
- 6 cups Honey Nut Cheerios
- 1 cup cashews
- 1/3 cup butter, melted
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 cup Reeses Pieces.
Measure the Cheerios and cashews in a large microwaveable mixing bowl.
Melt the butter in the microwave in a small (2 cup) glass bowl. Mix in the brown sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla. Microwave on high 30 seconds or until the mixture begins to boil.
Pour the butter mixture into the Cheerios and mix to coat. Microwave on high uncovered 3-4 minutes stopping to stir every minute. Spread onto a wax paper or foil lined cookie sheet to cool. When cool, transfer the snack mix to a serving bowl and mix in the Reeses Pieces.
Enjoy! We love this super easy to make Sweet Cashew Cheerios Snack Mix, and always make it for fall. Standard time to make it would be about 15 minutes. It takes a little longer with little hands measuring and stirring, but not so long they get too tired, and they definitely love eating their creation!
