Chocolately Churro Chex Mix

I've been meaning to make churro Chex mix forever now and finally got my hands on some cinnamon chips, which can be hard to do. I found some Hershey's Cinnamon Chips at my local grocery store, but I know they're sold at specialty kitchen stores as well.

Anyway, back to the good stuff...this Chex mix is unreal. I added chocolate chips mostly because I didn't have enough cinnamon chips leftover and it just worked so I'm sticking to it.

Cinnamon and chocolate may sound like a weird combination, but I'm telling you, they're made for each other.
The cinnamon and chocolate chips are melted together to coat the cereal and then dusted with a yummy cinnamon-sugar mixture. I mean how can you say no to that?
Another awesome thing is this Chex mix is gluten-free and can easily be doubled if you need to take it to a large gathering. Trust me on this one, it will be the hit of the party.

Chocolatey Churro Chex Mix
5 cups rice Chex cereal
1 cup Hershey’s cinnamon chips
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

1. In a large microwavable bowl, microwave the cinnamon and chocolate chips in 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval, until melted. Pour in Chex cereal a cup at a time until completely coated.
2. In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar, granulated sugar and cinnamon. Pour onto cereal mixture and toss to coat.
3. Pour cereal mixture onto wax paper or a cookie sheet and let cool before serving.
