Updated Oct 16, 2008

Ingredients

  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (6 oz)
  • 3 cups Corn Chex™ cereal
  • 3 cups Rice Chex™ cereal
  • 3 cups Wheat Chex™ cereal
  • 2 cups salted dry-roasted peanuts
  • 2 cups small pretzel twists
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 package (20 oz) vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark)

Steps

  • 1
    Place chocolate chips in freezer to chill. In large bowl, mix cereals, peanuts, pretzels and marshmallows; set aside.
  • 2
    In large microwavable bowl, microwave candy coating uncovered on High 1 minute 30 seconds; stir, breaking up large chunks. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until coating can be stirred smooth.
  • 3
    Gently and quickly fold cereal mixture into coating with rubber spatula, stirring gently until evenly coated. Stir in chilled chocolate chips. Spread on waxed paper; cool completely, about 30 minutes. Break into chunks. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    One cup miniature semisweet candy-coated chocolate candies for baking can be substituted for the chocolate chips.
  • tip 2
    Several brands of candy coating are available, and each may melt a bit differently. The white color varies, and when melted, some are thinner than others. Make a note of the brand you prefer to work with, and watch carefully while melting.
