Slow Cooker Caramel Apple Pie Chex Mix
Author: 
Serves: 20
 
Ingredients
  • 3 C Vanilla Rice Chex cereal
  • 3 C Cinnamon Rice Chex cereal
  • 1½ C mini pretzel twists
  • 1½ C coarsely broken graham crackers
  • 1½ C walnuts (or nuts of your choice)
  • ½ C maple syrup
  • ½ C butter, melted
  • ¼ C brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • ½ tsp ginger
  • ¼ tsp cardamom
  • 1 C coarsely crushed apple chips
  • 1 C caramel bits
Instructions
  1. In a six (6) quart slow cooker, combined cereals, pretzel twists, broken graham crackers, and walnuts.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together maple syrup, melted butter, sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, and cardamom. Pour over cereal mixture and stir until coated.
  3. Cook uncovered on high for 1½ - 2½ hours, stirring every 25-30 minutes, until excess moisture is gone (You will notice the moisture on the bottom of the slow cooker starting to disappear more every time you check) and mixture is only somewhat sticky. (You may be tempted to skip the stirring, but you want to make sure that the bottom pieces don't scorch and that the mixture cooks evenly!)
  4. Stir in apple chips and caramel bits.
  5. Spread mixture out onto cookie sheets, and allow to cool completely.
  6. Serve. Store leftovers in an airtight container.
