Before I begin, I must update you all on some problems people have been having making this recipe. If you’ll read in the comments below, you will see that this can be a very temperamental recipe to make. Some people are very frustrated by it. I have never had issue with it. If I can give you one tip it would be to not overheat your cinnamon chips. As soon as they are warm enough to stir smooth, dump it over your cereal mixture and it should be just fine. If you overheat it then it becomes pasty and will not mix in with your cereal. That is the only tip I can give you. If you want to read in the comments below, some other people give a few tips that have worked out for them. I promise you, you need to try this recipe for yourself. It is so good! Good luck!
One of my favorite treats our Churros. We always seem to end up getting some on our way out from shopping at Costco. I don’t know what it is but anything with Cinnamon and Sugar just gets me! Besides this Churro Chex Mix, we also make Churros de la Casa a lot! After our trip to Mexico, it has become a favorite cinnamon and sugar treat as well!
Here is the Churro Chex Mix recipe:
9 cups Chex cereal (I like using rice Chex)
2 cups cinnamon chips (these may be tricky to find, especially if it isn’t near the holidays)
1/4 cup butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Pour cereal into a large bowl, set aside. Mix sugars and cinnamon together in a small bowl and set that aside too.
Melt cinnamon chips and butter in microwave for 30 seconds then stir. Put back in for another 10 seconds and stir again until smooth. DO NOT OVERHEAT. If you have to heat it again, just do it for 10 seconds because if you over-cook it then it will be thick rather than thin and smooth. If you take the mixture out of the microwave and it doesn’t seem like they are melted, stir them anyways because as you stir the mixture it will melt more and some people do not think about this so they microwave it more and the mixture becomes too tough. Stirring is key before overheating. Once smooth, pour over cereal mixture and mix until the cereal is all coated.
Slowly add the half of the sugar mixture into the chex while tossing. Coat the whole mixture and then lay it on wax paper on the counter top. Sprinkle the rest of the sugar mixture on top and let it cool before serving or storing.
Caution: Churro Chex Mix is addicting. Once you start, you cannot stop!
