Snickerdoodle Chex Mix is basically snickerdoodle cookies in snack form! Rice cereal coated in white chocolate then tossed in cinnamon sugar.
This is a lightning-fast sweet snack to make for any occasion! Snickerdoodle Chex Mix was inspired by the taste of snickerdoodle cookies and the method to make puppy chow (muddy buddies). The results are addicting little morsels of crunchy sweet goodness.
Snickerdoodle Chex Mix only takes 5 simple everyday ingredients to make. I know, I’ve made it too easy for you to make this, you’re so welcome. So let’s get started by gathering up these ingredients:
- Rice Chex Cereal – this is the base of this recipe. If you’d rather use another type of Chex mix cereal (wheat, corn, cinnamon, etc.) feel free to do so. I like the rice Chex cereal best for this recipe because it doesn’t have any strong flavors to compete with the other ingredients.
- White Chocolate Chips and Salted Butter – these two are mixed and melted together to coat the cereal! So GOOD! Feel free to use unsalted butter if that’s all you have.
- Granulated Sugar and Ground Cinnamon – while the white chocolate mixture is still warm, a cinnamon sugar blend is tossed on top. That way each little bit of cereal is covered.
