Expert Tips

We like Rice Chex® cereal in this crispy snack, but Corn Chex® cereal would be tasty too.

The bowl with the melted chocolate chips will be hot as it comes from the microwave oven. Handle it with pot holders.

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
