Chai Latte Chex Mix

Being the capricious person that I am, I end up in some pretty weird food places. Sometimes this results in something not so good such as overly spicy penne or sugar-crusted ravioli (I guess I get pretty weird with my pasta lol). Today is one of those days, but I promise you these are super delish!

Muddy buddies are a staple beginner’s recipe that are really yummy. However, I’ve grown a bit tired of them after binge eating like 20 batches over the past several years. We’re going to shake things up and make a chai spiced chex mix!

INGREDIENTS:

12 oz white chocolate

1 tsp chai spice or 1 chai teabag

1 c confectioners’ sugar

5 c Chex cereal

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a microwavable-safe bowl, melt the white chocolate in the microwave on high at 15-30 second intervals (so as not to burn the chocolate). You could also use a Bain-Marie if you are classy like that.
  2. Once the chocolate is melted, use a spatula and mix in the chai spices.
  3. In a large bowl with your cereal, pour the chocolate mixture on top and mix with a spatula until well coated.
  4. Add the confectioners’ sugar to the cereal and mix again until coated.
  5. Store in an airtight container and consume unhealthy amounts until you’re sick.

My thoughts on this peculiar creation? When you take your first bite you are met with a soft exterior and then a crunchy inside. You can taste the sweet white chocolate, which is followed by a mild spicy kick from the chai. Overall, this recipe is a great remix, with unusual harmonies you might not experience otherwise. If you’re a chai lover you should try this out!
