As usual we celebrate this time of year by having I LOVE PUMPKIN week. When looking for new and drool worthy ways to use create a pumpkin treat I came across this Pumpkin Pie Chex Mix. When I used it as a response for “What are you making for pumpkin week?”, I got “WHAT? It doesn’t even have pumpkin in it! We want the orange stuff!!” So, before you even get to the ingredient list I will tell you it does not have the orange stuff! There is no pumpkin in this recipe. That being said, it is a wonderful (and quick) way to create the flavors and warmth of pumpkin pie without having to bake or use a fork to eat it.
The original recipe called for pecans. I thought it sounded like a great idea but I couldn’t see spending the money on them when my husband and kids wouldn’t appreciate them. So I added a ginger twist by substituting with Annie’s Gingersnap Bunny Crackers. You could use broken gingersnap cookies, broken graham crackers, or nothing at all. Since the chex is the real star of the show here!
