Sweet Apple Cinnamon Chex Mix
Recipe adapted from General Mills
3 cups wheat chex
2 cups corn chex
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3 T light corn syrup
1 cup whole almonds
1 cup yogurt-covered raisins or cranberries
1 cup dried apples, coarsely chopped
In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine chex and almonds and set aside. Add butter, sugar, vanilla and corn syrup to a 2 cup measuring glass and microwave for 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute. Pour mixture over chex mixture and toss until well distributed. Microwave for 3 minutes, uncovered, stirring every 45 seconds. Add apples to the mix and continue microwaving for another 2 minutes, stirring every 45 seconds.
Spread mixture onto a large sheet of waxed paper and allow to cool for about 15 minutes. Transfer to an airtight container or serving bowl and stir in yogurt-covered raisins or cranberries.
