  • 1 box Cinnamon Chex® cereal 13.5 ounce
  • 1 1/2 c white chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp. pumpkin spice
  • 1/2 c confectioners sugar


  • Carefully melt white chocolate in microwave. I started at 1 minute, removed and stirred, then heated again in 10-second increments until completely melted.
  • Add pumpkin spice to melted chocolate and stir well.
  • Place cereal into bowl; pour white chocolate mixture over cereal. Stir until well coated.
  • Important: Transfer mixture to a large resealable plastic food bag and add powdered sugar. Seal bag tightly. Shake bag until powdered sugar evenly coats cereal. Do not attempt to stir confectioners sugar into cereal mixture
  • in bowl, it will create a BIG mess and break most of your cereal pieces.
