Super Bowl Snack Time

Chex® Honey Nut Cherry Crunch

Wow, Where has the year gone. I can't believe it is February already and Super Bowl Sunday is just days away. This is a great time to gather around with your friends and family and enjoy some GF snacks, some great football and amazing commercials, oh can't forget about the halftime bonanza.

I suggest you make this super easy, kid friendly Gluten Free munchie snack for everyone to enjoy and if you have leftovers pack them up for a weekday snack for school, work or just for home.

4 1/2 cups Honey Nut Chex® cereal
4 1/2 cups Rice Chex® cereal
2 cups whole cashews
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup dried cherries
1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds
1.   In large microwavable bowl, mix cereal and cashews.
2.   In 2-cup microwavable measuring cup, microwave brown sugar, butter and honey and salt uncovered on High about 1 1/2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute, until mixture comes to a boil. Stir butter mixture. Pour over cereal mixture; stir until evenly coated.
3.   Microwave uncovered on High 4 minutes, stirring every minute. Stir in cherries and sesame seeds. Microwave an additional 3 minutes, stirring every minute. Spread on waxed paper or foil to cool. Store in airtight container.
