I was looking for a pumpkin pie recipe, and check out this AWESOME recipe I found over at Pillsbury! As soon as I saw the title of this recipe, I knew I had to make it. The combination of brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice makes this an amazing tasting Chex Mix. For a little variety, I used Honey Nut Cheerios instead of the Honey Nut Chex. Not only is this a wonderful tasting treat, it also smells heavenly! The butter, spices, and brown sugar create a smell that can only make you think happy thoughts….and then want to dive into this delicious Chex Mix full of sugar and spice. This one is definitely going to the office with me tomorrow to share with everyone.
