Pumpkin spice is in the air and that means fall is coming fast. Yes I will admit the whole pumpkin spice trend seems to start earlier every year! Luckily this Pumpkin Spice Snack Mix is great YEAR ROUND!
Pumpkin Spice Snack Mix
I love all things fall and it would be really hard to get through the season without eating or drinking something with pumpkin pie spice in it!
I also LOVE crunchy snacks and it is fun to serve something like this pumpkin spice snack mix during fall festivities. Now…I didn't say this was the healthiest snack….but it is great to have once in a while!
How to Make Pumpkin Spice Snack Mix
First take your large saucepan and add the butter.
Heat the butter over medium heat until melted.
After the butter is melted go ahead and add the brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice.
Stir this mixture to combine.
Now it is time to add all of the cereal and pecans to the saucepan. You can leave the pecans out if you don't care for nuts.
Stir, stir, stir…just keep stirring this mixture around until it is all coated with some of the butter mixture. It may seem like there isn't enough but the more you stir the more it will coat it all!
Lay a big piece of wax or parchment paper on the counter.
Dump the whole mixture on the paper and spread it all out.
Let this cool well and then store it in an airtight container…if it lasts that long, LOL!
Pumpkin, Pumpkin, Pumpkin
Everything is pumpkins right now. I am decorating my porch and that always gets me excited! If you are in the mood for pumpkin, be sure to try this Pumpkin Cheesecake No Churn Ice Cream for a delicious dessert! WOW…it is so good.
One of my all time favorite desserts is Pumpkin Praline Dessert and it is really easy to make. This was one of my early recipes…so my images could be better, LOL. You will LOVE this alternative to pumpkin pie.
