A friends wife made this for a Cub Scout den meeting and it was a huge hit! She calls it Christmas Crack because she only makes it during the holidays and you can't get enough of the stuff, lol.
My favorite indulgent snack!
Have you tried this recipe? What did you think?My nephew asked me to make this for him. Since he was in Iraq for three christmas's, I couldn't say no..He loved it and it was very easy to make..Will definately make it again..It also freezes well, so can be made ahead of time.
My family loves this. One item I change is that I put cereal in a large bowl with a lid... then I don't have to waste a plastic storage bag each time. Just pour the chocolate/peanut butter mixture over cereal as indicated, then add powdered sugar. Put the lid on the bowl and spin it over several times (don't shake to hard, but a little shaking okay). Enjoyable and environmentally responsible.
I made this for a fundraiser, and because of worries with peanut allergies, I substituted butterscotch chips for the peanut butter. They were a hit! I also made them with white chocolate chips for a girl who didn't like chocolate.
i remember making this in middle school!.....My big sister who is five years older than me use to make this all the time!!.....here iam 26 with my own child and i make it once a month in my home....my daughter loves it!!!....my honey and i sit up at night snacking on this with a cold bottle of water!!! lol......five stars!!
Great recipe! The only change I make is to use milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet (family preference!) and they turn out perfect - very addicting! Chocolatey, crunchy, sweet - can't go wrong! If you want a real treat, store them in the freezer (we store in them in snack-size bags for quick snacks). They taste even better straight from the freezer! Especially in the summer :)
Easy and good. I will do a 50/50 mix of semi-sweet and milk chocolate next time. I like it sweet!! I made a 1.5x batch, and I used a 1000 watt microwave. I only needed to microwave 15 seconds the second time before everything was smooth. I used a rubber scraper to stir the chocolate and chex together, carefully folding it in so as not to crush the cereal. Keep on stirring until the cereal is coated evenly with chocolate. Just like we did when I was a kid, we dumped the powdered sugar into a paper grocery bag and added the cereal to that. We then took the bag outside and shook, shook, shook it. A little powdered sugar leaks out of the seams of the bag, so that is why we do it outside. Perfect. Will go great with my son's 1st "puppy-themed" birthday party :)
