Servings 9 cups


  • 9 cups Chex Mix (use Rice, Corn, Chocolate or Honey-Nut- I used Rice)
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cups powdered sugar


  • Measure out the cereal into a large bowl.
  • In a medium glass bowl, microwave the chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter until melted and smooth- start with 1 minute, then stir, then microwave an additional 30 seconds. You can also do this on the stove- just warm it up in a small pan and stir over low heat until melted.
  • Mix the vanilla into the chocolate mixture, then pour the chocolate mixture over the Chex. Stir gently until the Chex are evenly coated with chocolate.
  • Divide the Chex evenly between two gallon zip bags. Add ¾ cup powdered sugar to each and then shake them until the sugar coats the Chex. Spread it out onto waxed paper to let it cool. Store it in a zip bag or airtight container in the refrigerator.
