  • 7 Cups Chex cereal- Mix, or just use your favorite. I am impartial to 4 cups Corn Chex, with a cup of wheat and 2 Cups rice.
  • 1 Cup Chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
  • 3 cups red and green M&Ms

Put chocolate chips and peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl and melt in the microwave in 30 second ingrements. Continue until completely melted.

Stir in Vanilla.

Slowly and gently fold in your Chex until covered.

Put powdered sugar in a ziplock bag (Freezer size works best). Transfer portions of cereal mix into bag and seal. Shake until covered. Transfer to a clean airtight container. Repeat until the whole mixture is done.

Fold in M&Ms and store in an airtight container.

Other ingredients you could add include Pretzels, Reeses Pieces and Nutella. Chex Mix shares some of their versions of this recipe here.
