(Chex) Peanut Butter Snack Mix


Recipe Description
Another easy-to-make Chex mixture. Peanut butter lovers will like this one! Original recipe by Holly Clegg. I clipped the recipe from a newspaper supplement.​
Preparation Steps:
I lined a jelly roll pan with Reynolds Wrap RELEASE non-stick foil and made 4 (consecutive) batches and used the same pan for all 4 batches - just wiped the foil off between batches. The RELEASE foil made for quick clean-up. Don't double the recipe or your mixture won't bake properly.​
Level of Difficulty:
Easy​
Time Needed:
1 hr. 40 min.​
Ingredients:
3 T. honey (I used low-glycemic agave nectar)
2 T. butter
3 T. peanut butter
4 c. Chex cereal (assorted wheat and corn - rice will also work - one kind or a mixture - your choice)
2 c. mini pretzels
1/3 c. dry-roasted peanuts​
Serves:
Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 175°F.

2. Combine honey, butter and peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat until smooth. Combine cereal, pretzels and peanuts in a large bowl. Pour peanut butter mixture over cereal mixture and toss to coat. Spread on baking sheet and bake 1-1/2 hours. Makes 6 cups.

Store in the refrigerator.

I'm eating the chocolate chex mix right now, any recipes for that one? I'm going to make the peanut butter in a few days.

It sounds similar to Puppy Chow (also called Muddy Buddy's I believe) without the chocolate. I might try it for my peanut butter loving dd.
