With the holidays just around the corner, I like to experiment with traditional Thanksgiving flavors. For this recipe, I get to use brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla. The fancy flavors combine to transform this traditional party mix into a fun holiday snack. Serve this mix as an appetizer prior to your Thanksgiving meal or as an accompaniment to your football feast, with a cold adult beverage.


1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/4 cup butter
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups Cinnamon Chex™ cereal
2 cups Wheat Chex™ cereal
2 cups Honey Nut Chex™ cereal
8 oz pecans


  1. In small bowl, mix brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice; set aside.
  2. In small microwave-safe dish, microwave butter on high for about 30 seconds or until melted. Stir in vanilla.
  3. In large microwavable bowl, mix all cereals and pecans.
  4. Pour butter mixture over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly distributed.
  5. Add sugar and spice mixture and stir until coated.
  6. Microwave uncovered on high for 5 minutes or until mixture begins to brown, stirring every minute.
  7. Spread on wax paper or a cookie sheet to cool.
  8. Store in airtight container

Food Mingle Blog Alternatives and Substitutions:

  • Be sure not to let the mixture burn. If it seems to be well heated at 4 minutes (instead of 5) then take it out.
  • I added an extra Tbsp. of butter because the mixture seemed a bit dry to me after combining it all together.

Yield: 16 servings
