Introducing: Foxwood Forest

Hello, hello!

I think I mentioned on here (maybe?) that Evan and I purchased an old fox-hunting lodge last fall. No? Well...we did!

We plan to blog about our renovation adventures + our journey to lead a simple life on a couple of wooded acres. You can follow along at Foxwood Forest! You can also find us on Instagram and Twitter. We'd love to have you join along! We have no idea what we're doing, so I can promise that it will be fun. And crazy. And probably terrifying at times. :)

I love sweets but lately I've been craving all.the.salty.things. Like chips and...more chips. Seriously, why are potato chips so delicious? Side note: have you tried the sriracha chips from Trader Joe's? No? Ok, get your hands on them ASAP. #delicious

In my quest to combine sweet and salty into one ultimate snack, I made this Salted Cinnamon & Sugar Chex Mix. I took it to work for a long afternoon meeting, and my coworkers and I demolished it! It's addicting so be warned. It honestly tastes like Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and that is certainly not a bad thing.

This is really easy to make, which I always appreciate. It calls for basic ingredients; my favorite. You can easily tailor this and double the recipe or even cut it in half -- whatever suits you! Cashews would also be a delicious substitute for peanuts. Pretzel M&M's could even be a fantastic addition. Just sayin'.

Salted Cinnamon & Sugar Chex Mix
Adapted from Chocolate, Chocolate, and More

3 cups pretzel twists
2 cups Rice Chex
1 cup dry-roasted, unsalted peanuts
3 tablespoons butter, melted
3 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cover a 9x13-inch jelly roll pan with a sheet of foil.

In a large bowl combine pretzels, chex, and peanuts. In a separate, small bowl, whisk together butter, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Pour butter mixture over dry ingredients. Stir well to fully and evenly coat the pretzel mixture in butter. Place on foil-lined pan.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, stirring halfway through. Let cool on pan then transfer to air-tight container. Enjoy!
