This is a 5-star recipe all on it's own, but it's a 10-star in my book with the following additions and changes: I added 2 cups of pecan halves and 2 cups of pretzels. One 14.25 ounce box of Chocolate Chex mix is just over 9 cups so I put the whole box in. I increased the butter to one stick (or 8 TBS), increased brown sugar to 1 full cup packed plus 1 heaping TBS and increased corn syrup to 4 TBS and a 1/4 plus a little more tsp of the baking soda. It was a little work to mix it all up, but WELL worth it in the end! Left out the chocolate drizzle as this didn't add much to the treats and was quite messy if you pick up a handful to munch. You won't miss it, honest. This has turned into our favorite!
Pretty easy to make. Add melted chocolate as a bonus.
Very sweet, very addicting. I am not a drizzler, so I added the vanilla chips on the last stir before turning it out onto the waxed paper.
Sooo addicting! I followed the recipe to a T (except we couldn't find white chips, so we deleted it completely). So, so, so, so good. You do NOT need the chocolate. I repeat you don't need the chips! I think it tastes fantastic without it and would make it messy if you had chocolate drizzle (melting on fingers, etc.) I agree with a pp who said nuts would be good with this. As I write this, I am snacking on this mix with some almonds. Perfect combo of sweet and salty. Recipe gets brownie points b/c it is all made in the microwave. WooHoo!!!
We've been making this at Christmas time for the past 10 years. Chex used to call it "School Fuel". We leave off the drizzles and bag it as gifts for surprise visitors and the children's friends. Fantastically easy with an addictively sweet crunch.
OK I have to say that I have not personally made this, but my mom has. It's amazing and completely addicting. She makes it for me all the time and takes it to group functions. She's said that it's not too difficult either. I'd make it myself, but come one, some things are just better with mom's special touch :) She's made it by drizzling white chocolate, milk chocolate, a combo. For halloween she didn't drizzle chocolate but she put in colored m&ms. It's really easy to change things up a little to make it look a little more festive. But no matter how she makes it, it's always amazing!
Really good!I'm not big on microwaving, so I prepared it like I would do caramel. I put the butter, sugar, and cornsyrup in a pan over medium low heat until it was melted, then increased the heat to get it bubbling (about med-high). I let it simmer for about 3 minutes, then stirred in the baking soda, let it simmer for about 15-30 sec more (stirring constantly) and then poured over the cereal. You have to work fast before it hardens up, or put your mixing bowl with cereal over another bowl of hot water to keep it "loose". I then drizzled with melted peanut butter chips, and YUM!
this stuff is the bomb....and i love that it works great in high altitude!
