Chex Mix is a classic snack because of its versatility. While the original savory snack is a winner, we have seen dozens of “re-mixes” on the cereal-based munchies. There’s the Dill Pickle Ranch mix, the Frozen Inspired Puppy Chow, and the festive Cupcake Chow, just to name a few of our favorites. But, now that it’s September, we have pumpkin spice fever and are ready to mix things up again with this popular snack.
Luckily, we found a Chex Mix that looks like it ticks all the fall flavor boxes: sweet, salty, and, of course, perfectly pumpkin!
Princess Pinky Girl shared her recipe for Pumpkin Spice Snack Mix and we can’t wait to stir some up and dig in! In her post, she said created the recipe because she was on the lookout for a snack mix to bring with her on a road trip, but couldn’t seem to find one that hit the right mark. So, she decided to make her own!
This Pumpkin Spice Snack Mix combines a few of the classic party mix ingredients (primarily the cereal and pretzels) but adds everything you’d want to make it a fall season snack staple.
Some of the ingredients included in her recipe include Honey Nut Chex cereal (but you can choose your own favorite flavor), Caramel Bugles, pretzels, brown sugar, butter, pumpkin pie spice, and butterscotch M&M’s.
But what makes gives this snack mix its seasonal flair is the addition of Brach’s Autumn Candy Mix. These candy bags include those adorable candy pumpkins and candy corn. Yes, some people can’t stand candy corn, but our recipe creator said it really blends well with this savory seasoned mix.
The recipe’s step-by-step instructions, including photos, are easy to follow. In just about an hour (including baking time for some of the ingredients and just 10 minutes of prep), you’ll be ready to crunch away on this snack that blends the warm spices of fall with the sweetness of Halloween candy!
