You can make a large quantity of this snack in just a few minutes. It makes a great after school snack. We also like to take it camping or on day hikes. It’s so versatile, that you can even dress it up for any holiday just by adding M&Ms (red/pink/white for Valentine’s Day, red/white/blue for 4th of July, red/green for Christmas, etc.). We think your family will love it!


Melt together chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter.
Substitutions work well in this recipe, so try any nut butter, butter substitute or even almond bark.


Pour the melted mixture over the top of the Chex cereal.


Mix together by gently folding together with a spatula to avoid crushing the cereal.


Transfer to a gallon size plastic bag, add powdered mixture and shake to coat.
