Printer-friendly version


6 cups Vanilla Chex® cereal
1/2 cup whole roasted almonds
1/2 cup whole roasted cashews
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons dark corn syrup
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 cup gluten-free yogurt-covered cranberries or yogurt-covered raisins

Preparation Directions

1. In large microwavable bowl, measure cereal and nuts; set aside.
2. In 2-cup microwavable measuring cup, microwave butter on High 30 seconds; stir and microwave 30 seconds longer or until butter is melted; stir in brown sugar, corn syrup, and spices. Heat until boiling, about 30 seconds. Pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated.
3. Microwave uncovered on High about 3 minutes, stirring every minute, until mixture is glazed. Cool 5 minutes, stir in cranberries. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container.


If you have a hard time finding roasted cashews and almonds separately, you can just use 1 cup mixed nuts instead. Any nut will be very tasty in this sweet and spicy mix.
