Honey Ginger Chex Mix

It's the time for holiday parties.  I always make a large batch of traditional Chex Mix every year but this year when I was shopping for the ingredients I noticed this recipe printed on the side of the box.  It sounded really good so I picked up everything and tried it.

This is a really good mix.  I gave it out with Christmas gifts this year and everyone thought it was delicious.  It is also gluten-free so you don't have to worry about making something different for those with gluten allergies.

Honey Ginger Chex Mix:
(adapted from Chex)

6 cups Rice Chex and/or Honey Nut Chex cereal
1 cup dried banana chips
1 cup unblanched whole almonds
¼ cup butter or margarine
¼ cup packed brown sugar
¼ cup honey
1 ½ teaspoons ground ginger
½ teaspoon apple pie spice
1 cup flaked coconut
½ cup sweetened dried cranberries
½ cup dried pineapple

In large microwavable bowl, mix cereal, banana chips and almonds.
In 2-cup microwavable measuring cup, microwave butter, brown sugar, honey and ginger uncovered on high for about 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute, until mixture is boiling; stir.
