cranberry orange chex mix


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup thawed orange juice concentrate
  • 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp all spice
  • 1/8 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • 9 cups Chex cereal (mix rice and corn)
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries

Place the butter, brown sugar, orange juice, cinnamon, all spice and nutmeg into a large microwaveable bowl. Melt it all together in the microwave about 2 minutes (until melted and easily mixed).

Mix the cereal and almonds into the now melted mixture.  Use a large spoon to stir the cereal and almonds until they are evenly coated.  Microwave the mix on high for five minutes, stirring halfway through.

Add dried cranberries and stir again to mix them in.  Serve in a large bowl or divide into 1/2 cup servings.
