Ingredients Needed:

  • Crispy rice or corn cereal
  • Chocolate chips
  • Butter
  • Peanut butter
  • Powdered sugar
  • Mix-ins

Cereal: AKA “Chex” cereal or a brand equivalent. To get the best taste, the rice or corn flavors work best.

Mix-Ins: You add the amount & the sweets. A few ideas:
  • M & M’s – -any flavor or size
  • Reese’s Pieces
  • Chocolate covered pretzels
  • Peanut butter cups
  • Flavored baking chips
  • Chopped up candy bars
  • Mixed nuts

How to Make:

  • First, measure out the dry cereal. Set aside.
  • Next, melt the chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter until smooth.
  • Pour that mixture on top of the dry cereal. Gently mix it to coat.
  • Fill a large plastic storage bag with powdered sugar. Start off with 1 1/2 cups.
  • Transfer the coated cereal into the storage bag and seal it up.
  • Shake it up and make sure all that chocolate coated cereal is covered in powdered sugar.
  • If you need additional powdered sugar, use that extra 1/2 cup. But, do it gradually.
  • Once it’s done, pour it into a large bowl and stir in any add ins you may like.

Storage: Keep any leftovers in a covered container. No need to refrigerate, unless it’s very hot/humid in your area.
