Hey there!

I'm Tina

Looking for a super simple gluten-free treat? This Butterscotch Chex Mix is an irresistibly sweet and crunchy dessert made with only four ingredients!

If you have a sweet tooth, but don’t have the time or energy to make an elaborate dessert, then I have a recipe for you. This recipe rocks for a few reasons: 1) it only uses four simple ingredients that are most likely in your pantry; 2) it’s gluten-free; 3) it stores well… that is, unless you eat it all in one sitting – easy for the Haupert family to do!

This Butterscotch Chex Mix is an easy recipe to have the kiddos help make, too. Quinn can practically make this sweet and salty dessert by himself – with our supervisor, of course.

It’s the perfect thing to whip up for a family movie night or kid’s party. Anything with butterscotch, brown sugar, and butter has got to be good, right? Let me know if you give this sweet treat a try!
