Cinnamon Chex Mix . . . Sweet, crunchy, and packed with cinnamon sugar flavor, this snack mix is guaranteed to bring rave reviews!
This snack mix is super yummy, especially if you are a fan of cinnamon/sugar treats. (Who isn’t?)
The recipe kind of came out of desperation. We buy the boxes of Chex cereal that Sam’s Club carries around the holidays. They have one bag of Rice Chex, one of Wheat Chex, and one of Corn Chex.
Apparently none of my kids like the rice variety, because we always end up with a bunch of bags of it leftover. One night my oldest son needed to take a snack to a party, so I decided to make Chex mix to get rid of some of our stash.
We love the flavor of the Cinnamon Roll Caramel Corn that I posted a couple years ago, so I decided to try and mimic it in Chex Mix form. Oh my. It is delish!
It’s yummy just with the cinnamon-y caramel sauce, but the white chocolate takes it up a step. Needless to say, my son came home with an empty bowl- always a sign of a successful recipe!
Hope you like it as much as we do!

Can you use honey or maple syrup in place of corn syrup?
I never have, but I think that either of them should work. The flavor won’t be the same, but’s definitely worth a try.
I have also used these ingredients on. corn flakes & rice krispies. Yummy so good thinks for this one never tried Chex
Thanks for sharing your take on the recipe. I bet it would be tasty with corn flakes and rice krispies!

This sounds and looks so delicious! Love your site 🙂
This sounds delicious! I’m always looking for new and creative ways to make chex mix.
I am too! We buy the big box at Sam’s that has wheat, corn, and rice. No one in my family liked the Rice Chex for breakfast, so I’m always using them into Chex Mix. There sure are a lot of yummy varieties! 🙂
I have been craving something cinnamon and sugar! Seriously wishing I had some Chex on hand. Or even some bread at this point…really need to go buy some carbs 😉
Oh man, I know just how you feel. Can’t go a day without my carbs. I would die on Atkins!
I have some extra Chex cereal I need to use before it goes stale. Now I know what to do with it. Thanks!
If we lived a little closer I’d be knocking on your door. 😉
