Caramel Apple Chex Mix

I love Chex mix type for snacking.

And there are so many possibilities! This time I really wanted a fall-flavor kind of treat. I was definitely intrigued by the caramel sauce made with applesauce in it. I thought it turned out great.

I chose Rice Chex and Cinnamon Chex because that’s what I could find and it turned out great. If you have other Chex on hand, give it a try. Or Cheerios for that matter. There are so many flavors of both of these cereals, it’s a little bit ridiculous (the good kind of ridiculous).

So Chex, Cheerios, caramel apple sauce, toffee bits and white chocolate.

It’s delicious and you should try it.
