Crunchy Churro Chex Mix

This isn’t your ordinary Chex Mix.

Stephanie Loaiza shares a Churro Chex Mix that you’ll eat by the handful.
Churro Chex Mix
9 cups Chex cereal (I used corn chex)
2 cups cinnamon chips
6 tablespoons butter
¾ cup powdered sugar
½ cup white sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Dump cereal into a large bowl (the bigger, the better – this makes a ton!).

Place the cinnamon chips and butter together in a medium sized bowl and microwave on high heat for 45 seconds. Remove from microwave and stir, then heat again for 20 seconds. Stir until chips are completely melted and smooth. If you need to microwave them again, just do it for 15-20 second intervals, stirring in between. You want the melted chips to be thin and runny, not thick and clumpy (which is how they will be if you overcook them).
Pour melted cinnamon chips over the cereal and mix until all the cereal pieces are evenly coated.

In another separate bowl, mix together powdered sugar, white sugar, and cinnamon. Pour cinnamon/sugar mixture over the cereal, stirring the entire time, so that all pieces of cereal are evenly coated.

Spread cereal on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and let cool (or you can eat them warm because that is delicious too!).
