Cinnamon-Fruit Chex Mix


  • 5 cup Wheat Chex cereal
  • ½ stick Butter
  • 1/3 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 TBS. Light Corn Syrup
  • 1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. Ginger
  • Cayenne Pepper (I like these spicy so start small and add as needed after baking)
  • ½ cup Salted Almonds
  • ½ cup Salted Sunflower Seeds
  • 1 (7 ounce) package Sun-Maid Dried Fruit Bites
  • ½ cup Sun Dried or Golden Raisins



In a large bowl mix cereal, almonds, sunflower seeds, fruit bites and resins. Pour onto a large cookie sheet covered with foil or parchment paper.

In a microwaveable bowl, microwave butter, brown sugar, light corn syrup, cinnamon, ginger and cayenne pepper uncovered on high for about 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute. Pour over cereal, nuts and fruit. Stir gently to mix. Bake at 275° for 15-20 minutes stirring ½ ways through. Cool and store in an air tight container or freezer bag.
