How to Make Real Pumpkin Pie Chex Mix

Step-by-Step

  • 1Combine the melted butter, pumpkin, brown sugar, and spices in a large bowl. Blend well.

    Add cereal and nuts to the bowl. Carefully stir until mixture is well coated.
  • 2Preheat oven to 350^.(do not make this recipe in the microwave- it will not cook well and be one big lump)
  • 3Pour mixture into a well greased or sprayed roasting pan and spread in a single layer.
    Place in oven for 20 to 35 minutes depending on your oven. Stir mixture every 10 minutes. Keep an eye on this while baking , as it can burn quickly. It should be dark because of the pumpkin and spices, but not black!
    ---
    Mixture will look steamy from the moisture of the pumpkin. It will disappear as it cools.
  • 4Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Place on waxed paper or cookie sheet and separate into bite size pieces.
