Cinnamon Cereal Toffee Crunch- sweet, cinnamon cereal tossed with simple homemade toffee, and chocolate candy


  • 4 cups of cinnamon cereal such as Chex
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup salted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup M&Ms candies optional


  • Measure out the cereal. Pour in a large bowl, set aside.
  • Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add sugar.
  • Stir constantly for 6-8 minutes until the color is light brown (like a paper bag). If using a candy thermometer the temperature should reach about 298°F. The mixture may look curdled or separated- that's okay. You are looking for a light brown caramel color.
  • Immediately remove from heat and slowly add vanilla- being careful to avoid any splatters to your skin. Stir for a few more seconds, and pour over the cereal.
  • Stir the toffee to coat the cereal as best you can then spread the mixture onto your prepared baking sheet to cool. Add M&Ms if desired. Store in airtight container for up to 1 week.
