Churro Chex Mix

Sure, here’s a recipe for Easy Churro Chex Mix:


  • 4 cups Corn Chex cereal
  • 1 cup mini pretzels
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar


  1. Prep Ingredients:
    • Measure out the Corn Chex cereal and mini pretzels and set them aside in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Prepare the Cinnamon-Sugar Mixture:
    • In a small bowl, mix together the granulated sugar and ground cinnamon. This will be used to coat the Chex mix.

  1. Melt the Butter:
    • In a microwave-safe bowl or on the stovetop, melt the unsalted butter until fully liquid.
  2. Combine Ingredients:
    • Pour the melted butter over the Chex cereal and pretzels in the large mixing bowl. Gently toss to coat the cereal and pretzels with the butter.
  3. Add Cinnamon-Sugar Coating:
    • Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture over the coated cereal and pretzels. Again, gently toss to ensure an even distribution of the cinnamon-sugar coating.
  4. Bake the Mix:
    • Preheat your oven to 250°F (120°C).
    • Spread the coated Chex mix onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. This will help prevent sticking and make cleanup easier.
    • Bake the Chex mix in the preheated oven for about 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes to ensure even coating and prevent burning.
  5. Add Vanilla Extract:
    • After baking, remove the Chex mix from the oven and drizzle the vanilla extract over it. Gently toss to incorporate the vanilla flavor.
  6. Cool and Finish:
    • Allow the Chex mix to cool completely on the baking sheet. As it cools, it will become crisp.
  7. Powdered Sugar Coating:
    • Once the mix is fully cooled, transfer it to a large resealable plastic bag. Add the powdered sugar to the bag.

  1. Shake and Serve:
    • Seal the bag and shake it vigorously to coat the Chex mix with powdered sugar.
    • Pour the Easy Churro Chex Mix into a serving bowl and enjoy!

This Easy Churro Chex Mix is a delightful snack with the flavors of churros and the crunch of Chex cereal. It’s perfect for parties, movie nights, or any time you’re craving a sweet and cinnamon-spiced treat.
