Pistachio Chewy Bite Chex Mix

Serves 6-8

Ingredients:

4 cups organic wheat waffles cereal (or rice Chex if gluten-free)

2 cups salted mini pretzels (gluten-free or wheat)

¼ cup non-hydrogenated vegan butter

¼ cup evaporated cane sugar

½ teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

6 Setton Farms Pistachio Chewy Bites

1/3 cup dark chocolate chunks

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325°.

Heat a small pot, over medium-low and add vegan butter. Cook for about 2 minutes to melt. Remove from heat and set aside.

In a large bowl, add organic wheat waffles cereal (or Chex), and pretzels. Add sugar, sea salt and vanilla. Pour butter over mixture and gently fold to incorporate.

Spread out mixture on on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Chop each Pistachio Chewy Bite into 8-10 pieces. Fold into cooled mixture, with chocolate chunks and stir well, mixing until uniform. © Spork Foods, 2016
