Expert Tips

If you can’t find cinnamon Chex™, use Corn Chex™ or Rice Chex™ and add a little extra ground cinnamon.

Churros is like music to my kids’ ears. They could eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The combination of vanilla, sugar and cinnamon is definitely irresistible. So a few days ago I decided to surprise them with this delicious snack that has everything they love about churros: crunchy texture, sweet and with cinnamon. It’s super easy to make, although you should make a large quantity because it will simply fly off the table.

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • 2 Add cereal to a large glass bowl.
  • 3 Lightly spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray and set aside.
  • 4 In a pot, combine brown sugar, butter, 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon and water. Set on the stove on medium-high heat, and stir constantly to combine the ingredients and let boil for 1 minute. Turn off the heat, add vanilla, stir and immediately pour over the cereal.
  • 5 Transfer the cereal to the baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until you see the syrup starts to boil.
  • 6 Remove from oven, sprinkle with sugar and let cool completely.
  • 7 Break apart the cereal pieces and enjoy!
