Ingredients

  • 6 cups Vanilla Chex™ cereal
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free whole roasted almonds
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free whole roasted cashews
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp water
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free yogurt-covered cranberries or yogurt-covered raisins

Directions

  1. In large microwavable bowl, measure cereal and nuts; set aside. Line cookie sheet with waxed paper.
  2. In 2-cup microwavable measuring cup, microwave butter uncovered on High 30 seconds; stir and microwave 30 to 60 seconds longer or until melted. Stir in brown sugar, granulated sugar, water and spices. Microwave 30 seconds or until boiling. Pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated.
  3. Microwave uncovered on High 3 minutes, stirring every minute, until mixture is glazed. Cool 5 minutes; stir in cranberries. Spread on cookie sheet to cool. Store in airtight container.
  4. Tips Substitution: If you have a hard time finding roasted cashews and almonds separately, you can just use 1 cup mixed nuts instead. Any nut will be very tasty in this sweet and spicy mix. Healthy: Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
