 This is how we do it…

  1. First thing is first- make sure you have everything. I don’t know how many times I have started on something just to realize I don’t have an ingredient. When you are hankering for this delightful treat not having butter will really ruin your day folks.
  2. In a large pot melt the butter, chocolate chips, and peanut butter on medium to low heat. (Don’t burn or get it too hot- just to where it’s melted. If you over do it it will get thick and lumpy.)
  3. Turn off the heat and let the chocolate cool slightly. Then add in your Chex cereal. Stir it all together. (This is a good taste testing point)
  4. Measure out your powdered sugar and add it to a large bowl that has a lid.
  5. Add your mixture from the pot to the bowl with powdered sugar.
  6. Stick that lid on there and shake like crazy. Well not crazy, but you can have fun with it. The more you shake it the better the powdered sugar will cover the mix.
  7. Open the lid and look at the best thing you have seen all day. If you want to add more powdered sugar you can. I personally like to have mine a little gooey.
