Chex PB and Chocolate Blast



This was one of the recipes the chef made at the Taste of Home School I went to a few weeks ago. I decided to use fall colored M&M's and added some candy corn, too.  Half the batch is coated with vanilla chips and the other half with peanut butter chips, then mixed together. It's crunchy, sweet and addicting!


 It's a fun snack, and is perfect for fall munchies!

Check out the Halloween paper cones I made to package the mix in on my other blog, Stamping up North.

Chex PB and Chocolate Blast

6 c. rice chex
1 c. vanilla baking chips
1 c. peanut butter baking chips
1 c. M&M's
1 c. dry roasted peanuts
(I added 1 c. candy corn}
Line 2 cookie sheets with foil or waxed paper. Place 3 c. chex in a large bowl. In a small bowl, microwave the vanilla chips until melted. Pour over chex and stir to coat, pour onto baking sheet.  Refrigerate 5 minutes. Melt the peanut butter chips and mix with the other 3 c. of chex. Pour onto baking sheet. Refrigerate 5 minutes. Break into pieces and stir in the nuts and candy. Store in an air tight container.

Aw Laurie! This looks like it would evaporate on my kitchen counter this weekend when the family is all here. Our oldest son especially LOVES candy corn!

This looks perfect for my upcoming Halloween kid party, Laurie! Thanks for sharing! Do you happen to know whether it is gluten-free? I know that Chex cereal is. Thanks again! ~Jen http://happyplaceforjen.blogspot.com/
