There was a question in "Looking For" about a sweet Chex mix with glazed peanuts, so I went to the Chex Cereal Website and found this one. Here is the original link to the site for your reference:

There are several Sweet Mixes listed here.

I made some changes to this basic recipe when I made it and they will be included as notes in either the ingredients or the directions sections.

Ingredients

3 c
corn chex® cereal (i used 2c each wheat, corn and rice chex)
2 to 3 c
cheerios cereal
1 1/2 c
bugles corn snacks (i used a small 3 oz bag)
1/2 c
honey roasted peanuts (i added 1/2 c. roughly broken pecans also)
2 Tbsp
light corn syrup (do not use dark) (1/4 c)
2 Tbsp
honey (1/4 c)
1 Tbsp
butter (2 tbsp)
1/2 tsp
vanilla extract (i used 2 tsp of vanilla)
1 - 3oz
bag cinnamon teddy grahams crackers (my addition)
1/2 tsp
ground cinnamon (optional)

IF THERE IS AN INGREDIENT WITH AN AMOUNT LISTED BEHIND IT IN PARENTHESES( ), THAT IS MY VARIATION.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In large microwavable bowl, mix cereals, snacks and peanuts; set aside. In 4 cup pyrex measuring cup or medium microwavable bowl, microwave corn syrup, honey and butter uncovered on High about 3 to 4 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth and beginning to thicken. Stir in vanilla. Drizzle about 1/3 of the coating over cereal mixture and stir ; repeat twice the drizzle and stir, and then stir well until evenly coated. If you have a two tined turning fork, this makes a good stirring tool as it does not crush the cereal as much as a spoon or spatula.
2
Microwave uncovered on High 5 to 6 minutes, stirring every 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Spread on waxed paper or foil lined pans to cool. Store in airtight container
3
Because I doubled the coating mixture, it took additional time to cook the coating, so I have changed the recipe directions to reflect the longer times. You will also notice that I added some extra cereal and crackers. And finally I took half of the mix,added some pecans to it and then sprinkled it with about a half tsp of cinnamon before the final cooking stage for a different taste. This mix is not too sweet. It has a very delicate sweetness.
