Pumpkin Pie Chex Mix

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

This is the first time I have made this chex mix ( I printed it last fall from the Pillsbury site) . I never got around to making it but decided to make it today to usher in the freezing cold weather   as a treat for the family. And I have to say, it rocks! The house smelled amazing while it was in the oven and it was so easy to put together. I did not add the pecans this time. I didn't have any , so I left them out. My husband mentioned the omission, so next time there will be pecans. I think next time I will also double the recipe. My kids inhaled it when they got home from school.
