What are my ingredient options for Banana Foster Chex Mix?

The original  Bananas Foster is a dessert made with bananas and vanilla ice cream, with a sauce made from butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, dark rum, and banana liqueur.  This delicious snack mix has all the banana foster flavors except the vanilla ice cream, but hey if you want to top a bowl full of vanilla ice cream with this snack mix go for!   Banana Foster Chex Mix doesn’t use actual rum, we’re using rum extract as well as banana extract for the recipe. If for some reason you don’t like the flavor of rum, switch the rum extract out for vanilla extract. You can also switch out the pecans in the recipe for the nut of your choice.
