I know these went crazy around the web years ago, and I think that recipe is awesome even if I don’t have a clue who started it. There are so many churro chex recipes out there and not many bloggers linked up to a source even though it clearly was not their original idea so now here I am doing the same thing because I cannot figure out who started the craze. I did try them for the first time through babble so I’ll be noting them until I hear otherwise.

Now, let’s talk about why I’m posting this when it’s clearly all over. It’s because I like mine better. Haha! I think the other recipes are great, they just aren’t that wow factor for me. And really it’s silly what I do to make it even better but I know many of you have expressed just how much cooking makes you nervous and that you don’t like to experiment, so here’s what you need to do. Double the candy.

Check out how we make this all happen…

 

I use one whole box of Rice Chex (which is about 1 cup more than the recipe calls for) and then I make a bigger batch of the coating because it makes it more like a churro muddy buddies versus just a snacky chex mix. So, hop on it and probably invite some friends over or you’ll be eating it all.

  • I’m curious if anyone had made this with cinnamon Chex instead of rice Chex? Would it be too much cinnamon favoring? What do you think?

  • Where can I find the Rice chex?
    And one more stupid question… Do you think I can replace the Rice Chex by another ingredients like cracker?

    • Hi Natalie,
      I haven’t tried it with crackers so I’m not sure how that would taste.
