  • 8 tablespoons (113g) unsalted butter melted
  • ½ cup (100g) packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 4 cups (139g) Corn Chex (see note)
  • 4 cups (169g) Cinnamon Chex
  • 3 cups (142g) pretzel twists
  • 2 cups (195g) pecan halves
  • 1 cup (182g) candy corn
  • 1 cup (170g) white chocolate chips


  • Stir together brown sugar with melted butter and pumpkin pie spice.
  • Place cereal, pretzels, and pecans in the bottom of a 5-7 quart slow cooker. Tip: use a slow cooker liner to help with easy clean-up.
  • Pour butter mixture over the top and toss to coat.
  • Cover and cook on low, stirring every 20 minutes, until mixture is hot and coated, about 1 to 1 ½ hours. Be sure to stir it well. Turn hot mix out onto a cookie sheet and let cool. Toss candy corn into cooled mix.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.


  • You can use any Chex cereal you want. You need 4 cups of a plain version (rice, corn or wheat) and 4 cups of the flavored version (Cinnamon but you can also use plain, chocolate, honey nut or any flavor).
  • Use a slow cooker liner for easy clean up.
  • Not all slow cookers cook the same – some are hotter in some spots. Make sure to stir it every 20 minutes so it doesn’t burn in the hot spots.
  • Oven Directions: In step 4, bake in the oven for about 45 minutes at 250°, stirring every 15 minutes.
  • Microwave Directions: In step 4, microwave the mix for 5-6 minutes stirring every 30 seconds in step
