Slow Cooker Apple Cider Chex Mix

A couple things to note about this recipe!

  • You can really make it your own by adding whatever dry ingredients and/or candy you want. Some suggestions: bagel chips, almonds or other nuts, raisins, Reese’s Pieces, butterscotch chips, cheez-its, etc.
  • The seasoning measurements below provide a pretty light flavor. If you like extreme flavor, be sure to ramp it up!

Low+Slow Onion Candy (AKA Caramelized Onion)

It’s what I like to call Onion Candy, but others may call them Caramelized Onions. It resembles nothing like the sweet onion it came from. It’s been slowly and lowly cooked in butter and balsamic glaze.

I’m standing over my kitchen sink with a 10″ frying pan in my left hand and a spoon in my right hand. Well, at least 60 seconds ago I was. I realized what I was doing and decided to take a second to collect my thoughts before SLAPPIN’ MY MAMA. Keep on Reading!
