Chocolate Dream Chex Mix

I have not been blogging due to having an extensive hand surgery. I praise God that my hand is almost back to normal after many weeks of cast, braces and therapy.

I think this mix will be a new Christmas tradition for me. It did not last long both places I took it, I will make a double batch next time. It is simple and keeps a long time sealed in a tin for many Christmas parties, great for gift giving too!

Chocolate Dream Chex Mix


8 cups Chocolate Chex™ cereal
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
6 tablespoons butter or margarine
3 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup Reese's® Mini's Peanut Butter Cups
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup Salted Carmel Chips
1/2 cup milk chocolate baking chips
1/2 cup vanilla (white) chocolate baking chips


Into large microwavable bowl, measure cereal; set aside. Line cookie sheet with waxed paper or foil.

In 2-cup microwavable measuring cup, microwave brown sugar, butter and corn syrup uncovered on High 1 to 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute, until melted and smooth. Stir in baking soda until dissolved. Pour caramel mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Microwave on High 3 minutes, stirring every minute.

Spread on cookie sheet. Cool 10 minutes. Break into bite-sized pieces.

Make sure Chex™ mixture is cool to the touch (so candy doesn't melt.) Evenly sprinkle mini peanut butter cups and miniature marshmallows over Chex™ mixture.

Microwave Carmel chips starting with 20 seconds and stirring, then at 20 second intervals until the mixture is completely smooth.

Microwave Milk Chocolate chips the same as above,  (microwave temps vary, so watch the chocolate and stir frequently until it's of drizzling consistency)
Drizzle over the snack mixture. Then microwave the vanilla and drizzle it over mix.
Refrigerate until set. Break apart and store in tightly covered container.

Thanks for stopping by y'all and please come again soon!
