This sweet Chex mix recipe (oven baked) is the perfect snack for those chilly fall days. Pumpkin pie spice and brown sugar add the best flavor!
One of my favorite things in the world is a crunchy snack. I love to munch on potato chips, crackers, and just about anything else that falls into that category. The recipe I’m sharing today is quite simply, delicious. It’s also addicting, so watch out! This sweet Chex mix recipe is the perfect combination of sweet and crunchy…which in my book, is a match made in heaven.

Sweet Chex Mix Recipe Tips
- This sweet Chex mix is lightly coated and very crunchy. If you would like a thicker coating, the ingredients can be increased. Just use 1/2 cup of butter, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 3 teaspoons of vanilla, and 3 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice.
- For a gluten free snack: substitute gluten free pretzels for regular pretzels, and use Brach’s Natural Sources Candy Corn. The traditional Brach’s candy corn is not gluten free.
- This recipe fit perfectly in four quart-size mason jars. (They also help with portion control!)
- This sweet Chex mix recipe can, of course, be adapted to any season. For Christmas, add red & green M & M’s. For the spring and summer months, add mini marshmallows, raisins, or Craisins.
