Cranberry Cinnamon Nut Chex Mix

This was the first time I had attempted a "Chex Mix" and I chose two varieties--cinnamon and barbeque. I checked out a variety of recipes on the Chex website  and came to the conclusion that I should just throw a few of my favorite ingredients in a bowl and call it good. :) This mixture is quite delicious--especially if you're a fan of walnuts, cranberries (raisins would work too) and cinnamon. 


3 cups rice Chex
3 cups corn Chex
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup dried cranberries
1-1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
4 packets Splenda or 3 Tbsp sugar
1/4 cup melted butter

Preheat oven to 325. 
In a large bowl, combine cereal, walnuts, cranberries, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar. Melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl and bowl over the dry mixture. Stir until every the butter is evenly distributed. 
Spread on a large cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes, stirring once halfway through. 
Pour mixture onto a sheet of wax paper to cool before storing in an airtight container.
