Pumpkin Spice Autumn Mix

This fall snack is just perfect to snack on, to give away for Halloween goodie bags, it has the exact amount of fall spices and crunch to satisfy anyone's appetite. I love all Chex cereal, I make the muddy buddies all of the time and snacks with this cereal, this recipe is perfect you just dump it into the bowl microwave or bake it. My house smells amazing when I bake it, but I have to admit microwaving it is just so simple, then you store it in a container and before you know it either you or who ever is over will eat it, I just grab it by the handfuls and watch tv or go on my computer, it's just the perfect snack. I don't love candy corn, but it works in here when you eat in a bunch, I actually tried the new caramel Apple candy corn and that is amazing in it also.
