Peanut Butter and Chocolate Blast Chex





Ok so my computer is finally fixed! Well, it wasn't fixed because it ended up having to go to Computer Heaven, sad. But we did end up replacing that computer. So, because I miss updating my little blog, I chose the quickest recipe to updae first.


Yes, this may be a simple and quick snack, but it sure is delicious. Say it with me: "Peanut Butter and Chocolate Blast Chex". During the holiday season, Chex comes out with its Hot Coacoa mix and I am truely obsessed with the stuff. I eat the chocolate wafter cereal things first, then the mini marshmallows, then the swirly graham cracks and finish off with the sugary-coated cereal bits. You may be wondering about the crunchy pretzles, well I throw those out. But If I don't eat my Hot Coacoa Chex in tha order, something feels off. I'm a very strange when it comes to eating the order of my food. Please tell me I'm not the only one.


Anyways, back to this PB and Chocolate Chex. It is lucious and peanut buttery and so chocolately. I definitely had my favorites. I ate the peanuts first, the M&Ms second and alternated between the bittersweet chocolate-coated cereal and the peanut butter-coated cereal bits. Yes, this Chex had two sweet types of coating. I'm pretty sure I went through the entire recipe in just a couple days.


Added Note: As I was typing the ingredients portion of this post, my dad told me to come downstairs into the kitchen. Upon arrival he handed me "The Giant Envelope". Maybe some of you know (or remember) this time of the year is aslso known as College Appication Season to High School Seniors. The "Giant Envelope" contained my acceptance letter to College of Charleson! So far I have been accepted into three schools. Now I'm patiently waiting to hear from two other schools.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Blast Chex     
adapted from Chex

Ingredients
6 cups Rice Chex cereal, divided
165 g bittersweet chocolate
165 g peanut butter chips
3/4 cup M&Ms (I chose to be festive and used red and green)
3/4 cup roasted peanuts

Directions
  1. Line two bakings sheets with parchment paper or foil. Place 3 cups of cereal into a large bowl. In a double boiler, melt the bittersweet chocolate until it's smooth (microwaving could also work). Pour the melted chocolate over the cereal and toss to evenly coat. Dump the coated cereal onto one of the lined baking sheets; spread so its an even layer. Place in the refirdgerator for about 10-15 minutes or until the chocolate has firmed up.
  2. Repeat the above steps for the peanut butter chips.
  3. Break up the chocolate coated cereal and the peanut butter coated cereal. Place the chocolate coated cereal, peanut butter coated cereal, M&MS, and roasted peanuts into a resealable plastic bag and mix until all the ingredients are somewhat evenly destributed (the M&Ms and peanuts will sink to the bottom eventually).

  4. Tia- I'm sure chocolate Chex would work just as fine. What would be really awesome is if you coated the chocolate Chex in more chocolate ;) Just a thought. Happy Holidays to you as well *<}:) (that's a Santa)
