This stuff is so darn good! It's addictive so I don't make it too often. It can be made with lots of substitutes... I've substituted different cereals for the Chex such as Cocoa Puffs, Golden Grahams, and Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I've also substituted different chips for chocolate chips such as butterscotch, white, milk, dark, etc. It's easy and delish!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This recipe takes Chex mix to a whole new level. It's filled with cereal, Reese's mini cups, marshmallows, peanut butter chips, and chocolate chips. The recipe makes quite a bit. Perfect for a party or to leave on the counter during the holidays and let everyone grab a handful as they pass by. Package in a cellophane bag for a delicious homemade Christmas gift.

    In that same pan (less dishes=good thing) which is now empty, add 1 cup peanut butter chips and 2 tablespoons of heavy cream. Stir until melted.
  • Peanut butter mixture drizzled over Chex mix.

    When melted, drizzle over the mix.
  • Melting chocolate chips.

    Repeat the same steps using the chocolate chips.

    *You can substitute cereals in this also. One time I used 4 cups rice Chex and 4 cups Cocoa Puffs. You can also substitute different flavors of chips... white chocolate, butterscotch, etc. Use additional ingredients also such as pretzels, M & M's, or whatever is on hand.
