Pumpkin Spice Chex Mix | Pale YellowHere is a secret - I've been going to bed early every night, early early.  Like 8 p.m. early.  It's as if I'm so overwhelmed with all I have to do, I just give up and go to bed.  It may be time to reintroduce caffeine back into my life because November is going to be crazy busy! Pumpkin Spice Chex Mix | Pale YellowThis is a an easy recipe for those of you that are crazy busy.  Just toss ingredients together and let cook; maximum results for minimum effort!  Plus, the recipe is completely adaptable for any ingredients you want and a great way to use up odds and ends left in the pantry.

Pumpkin Spice Chex Mix | Pale YellowAnd, it's almost Halloween, this would a fantastic, not-so-sugary snack to nom on between fun size candy bars. pumpkin spice Chex mix is addicting.  I found myself taking little bites over and over again when I was waiting for it to cool and when I was packaging it up.

Pumpkin Spice Chex Mix | Pale YellowThis isn't the crispiest Chex mix, but that is fine by me.  I found myself looking for the pieces with the most spice mixture on top.  There is rich, warm flavor from all the fall spices and a subtle sweetness from the maple syrup.  My favorite bits were the Club crackers.  As always, substitute the cinnamon, cloves, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg for an equal amount of pumpkin pie spice.  Even if you don't make this for Halloween, I  think it would make a fantastic appetizer for Thanksgiving!
