Caramel Tagalong Chex Mix

I know this series is supposed to be all about the Girl Scout Cookies and making them the stars of these recipes. But I have just got to say– you could probably throw out the Tagalongs, and this Chex Mix would still be incredible!
This recipe is actually a spin off from a recipe in my upcoming popcorn recipe book, Party Popcorn! I took my long-time favorite caramel corn recipe and substituted Chex cereal for the popcorn. Voila! It’s seriously the best dang Chex Mix ever. It’s buttery and sweet, crunchy and just the slightest bit chewy, and utterly addicting.
Even though the caramel-coated Chex could stand alone and be wonderful, I think the Tagalongs are a really delicious addition. The warm caramel melts the chocolate and peanut butter layers enough that they swirl into the caramel coating, leaving behind pieces of crunchy cookies. L-O-V-E.
Note: if you’re going to be eating this snack mix right away, it’s not completely necessary to bake it. Leaving it unbaked will leave the caramel coating just a tad chewy (which I really like). But if you are planning on storing it or packaging it to giveaway (or just want it crunchy!), simply follow the instructions for baking and cooling below.
