Sweet Hot Chex Mix

Submitted by Linda
Several years ago when Michelle and I launched Front Row Friends, our good friend Nancy asked (by way of a comment on the blog) if we would ever post this recipe. Well, the time has come, and today's the day!

The real story is that this afternoon, I received an email reminding me that our church leadership team's monthly meeting is tonight. As a former member on that team, I always appreciated when snacks or goodies were brought to our meetings. Considering that some committee work is a thankless job, I decided my new job is to bring goodies whenever I can. And I will say that baking something once a month is much easier that doing the difficult and important work of leadership and vision casting.

Since I had sort of "forgot" about the meeting, I hurried home from school to see what I had on hand. I usually like to take both a sweet and savory item, in case people haven't had dinner or are avoiding sugar.

This recipe blends the right amount of sweet and spicy, to make it positively ADDICTING!

Sweet Hot Chex Mix

5 C. chex (any combo of rice, corn or wheat)
5 C. popped popcorn
1 package taco seasoning
1/4 C. brown sugar
1 cube butter
optional: peanuts, pretzels, etc

Melt butter in microwave. Add brown sugar and taco mix. Drizzle onto cereal/popcorn and stir. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, stir. Serve when cool.
