  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla This is my favorite Mexican vanilla
  • 2 cups Corn Chex cereal
  • 3 cups Cinnamon Chex cereal
  • 2 cups Cheerios cereal
  • 3 cups pretzels
  • 2 cups Bugels
  • 1 1/2 cups candy corns
  • 1 1/2 pumpkin candy
  • 1 bag fall colored M & M’s


  • Preheat oven to 250°F.
  • In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter.
  • In a large baking pan (I use a roast pan), mix cereals and pretzels.
  • Stir in pumpkin pie spice and brown sugar. Cook for one minute and then remove from heat. Add the vanilla and stir in completely.
  • Pour sauce mixture immediately over cereals and toss to evenly coat pieces. Bake 60 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.
  • Once cool, stir in candy corns and candy pumpkins. A fun Halloween twist is to add candy eyeballs, but I stuck with a harvest theme.
