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.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups Cinnamon Chex™ cereals
  • 4 cups Vanilla Chex™ cereal
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar

    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.
