Cranberry-Nut Cinnamon Chex Mix

I found this recipe on the back of the Cinnamon Chex box, and it is too good not to share.

It has an awesome combination of flavors, especially the hint of orange.

I followed the directions that can be found on http://www.chex.com, but I did make one change. Instead of using 6 cups of Cinnamon Chex, I used 4 cups of Cinnamon Chex and 2 cups of plain Rice Chex, so the sweetness wouldn’t be too overwhelming.

To start, put 4 cups Cinnamon Chex, 2 cups Rice Chex, and 1 cup of chopped walnuts in a microwave safe bowl.

In a separate, smaller microwave safe bowl, combine 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Microwave for two minutes, stopping every 30 seconds to stir the mixture together.

Then, pour this heated mixture evenly over the cereal and walnut mixture.

Microwave on high for five minutes, stirring every two minutes.

Remove from microwave, and then add 1/2 cup dried cranberries.

Line a cookie sheet with wax paper or foil, and then spread the mix out on the cookie sheet. Let cool, and then enjoy!
