Do It Yourself: Sugar Cookie Chex Mix

Hello Everyone! I apologize for my absence this past little while, I have been very ill lately and with that I find it hard to do any posts. But I am starting to try to get back into the swing of things and decided I would bring you a yummy snack for any occasion. The nice thing is the base of this mix is gluten free so as long as you make sure your other ingredients are good you have a yummy gluten-free snack!

What You Need:
• 6-cups of Rice Chex Cereal (which is less than one box)
• ¼ cup of margarine or butter
• 1 tbsp of corn syrup
• ¼ cup of granulated sugar
• 2 tsp of vanilla extract
• 1 cup of icing sugar

Optional Add-on: I added M&M's to mine to add a little bit of colour, you can either add the same or any other candy of your choice. You can also leave it plain. The snack is delicious just by itself.

• large microwaveable bowl (I chose one with a lid)
• microwavable measuring cup
•measuring spoons

1. Measure out 6 cups of the Chex cereal and pour it into the microwavable bowl.

2. In the measuring cup melt ¼ cup of margarine or butter for 30 seconds or until it is melted.

3. Once melted add 1 tbsp of corn syrup and ¼ cup of granulated sugar, heat this mixture for an additional 30 seconds.

4. Once heated give the mixture a quick stir and add in 2 tsp of vanilla extract. Once the vanilla is added stir again to make sure all the contents are mixed.

5. Pour the mixture onto the cereal and begin to slowly mix. Make sure to move slowly so you don't break any of the cereal and make sure all the cereal is covered.

6. Place the microwavable bowl into the microwave for two 1 min intervals. Make sure that you carefully stir the mix after each minute.

7. Pour the icing sugar onto the cereal. I did this in small bits to make sure all my cereal was covered. I chose to use a bowl that had a lid so I could place the lid and shake until all my mix was covered in the icing sugar. If you don't have a bowl with a lid you can either place the mix in a large freezer bag and seal it tight and shake, or you can slowly stir the icing sugar in.

8. Once finished the mix should be covered in the icing sugar. You can either serve as is or add any garnish that strikes your fancy.
