Crockpot Maple Pumpkin Chex Mix

This is a sweet and crunchy treat just full of fall flavors.  If you don't want to make it in the crockpot you can cook it in a 250 degree oven.

8  cups Chex cereal
2 cups nuts
2 cups pretzels
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 to 2+ tablespoons pumpkin pie spice
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Mix together the cereal, nuts, and pretzels.   Next stir together the butter, syrup, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla.  Pour over the cereal mixture and stir well.  Pour into a crockpot and cook on high for 2 hours, stirring every 20 minutes.  Spread out on a cooky tray and allow to dry about 2 hours to overnight.   If desired stir in 1 c. dried fruit.  Keep in a tightly closed container.
