Cinnamon Sugar Chex Mix #SundaySupper

Cinnamon Sugar Chex Mix - a gluten free treat the whole family will love!

Another football season is about to end.  It’s amazing how quickly the seasons pass, and how often the Lions don’t make the playoffs.  Oh well, at least there are two great teams competing this year.  Though I like both teams, I have really enjoyed watching the Panthers this season.

Whether you are hosting a party or just hanging out with family or even by yourself, I bet you are going to watch the big game, if only for the commercials and halftime.  And you definitely need some fabulous food to make the festivities … well more festive.

Cinnamon Sugar Chex Mix - a gluten free treat the whole family will love!

Sure you need a savory entrée and maybe a drink, luckily my Sunday Supper friends have you covered there, but I’ve got dessert locked down.

Cinnamon Sugar Chex Mix is one of those things that just screams football.  It’s an addictive snack that is easy to crunch on while you watch and cheer.  Plus, it makes a ton.  In fact, I halved the recipe and still have plenty of Chex Mix to share … or not.  Because you might not want to share this.

It’s crispy crunchy with Chex, pretzels, and pecans all coated in an addictive cinnamon sugar mix.  I even used Glutino pretzel twists to keep this mix gluten free and friendly for all special diets.  If you aren’t a fan of pecans, swap in walnuts, peanuts, or almonds.

Whether your team wins or loses, you will be cheering for this Chex Mix to go all the way!
