Prep:

15 Min

Method:

Microwave

Ingredients

4 1/3 c
cup chex
2/3 c
chocolate chips
3 Tbsp
peanut butter
2 Tbsp
butter
1 tsp
pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 Tbsp
rocky road ice cream
1 c
powdered sugar
1 1/4 c
marshmallows, mini
1/3 c
nuts

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Measure cereal and 6 tablespoons of marshmallows (5/8 cup) into a large bowl, set aside.
2
In a microwavable bowl (big enough to hold 1 cup of liquid) microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter for one minute.
3
Stir, and add ice cream. Microwave until smooth, add vanilla.
4
Add 6 tablespoons of marshmallows (5/8 cup) to the mixture until they start to slightly melt.
5
Pour the mixture over cereal, stir with a rubber spatula until evenly coated.
6
Use a large spoon (or whatever method works for you) to scoop the cereal into a gallon size plastic bag. Add powdered sugar and nuts.
7
Seal bag and shake until coated. You can serve this whenever, I like it best warm and melty, and it's crunchier on the first day.

Notes:
*you can use any nut butter in place of peanut butter, even Nutella.
