Want to earn some “mom points”? Here’s a quick easy snack that scores me some good mom points. Cereal, butter, sugar, cinnamon - Yum.
Start by melting 4 tablespoons of butter. I use real butter in cooking, always. Anyhow, put 4 tablespoons of butter in a large pot. Add 1/3 cup white sugar and 1 ¼ teaspoons of cinnamon.
Over medium heat, stir until melted. Stir constantly, you don't want this to burn. Remove from heat.
Add 3 ½ to 4 cups of crunchy rice (rice chex) cereal. Stir (fold) until cereal is coated.
Cool on waxed paper. This stores well in zip lock bags.
I always make two batches of this as it disappears fast at our house. I don’t recommend making a double batch as it is hard to coat 7 or 8 cups of cereal at one time.
Here’s the actual recipe. Please note that I don’t follow the directions, I melt the butter, sugar and cinnamon together, it just works for me. Plus it's not as messy when they eat it, no sugar granules all over the place.
1/3 cup sugar
1 ¼ tsp cinnamon
4 tbs butter
4 cups rice chex.
Melt butter, add cereal and coat. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Mix.
