Chocolate Peppermint Chex Mix

Chocolate Peppermint Chex Mix
This Chex Mix is delightful bites of Rice Chex cereal coated in a peanutty minty chocolate sauce and covered with crushed candy  canes.  They are delicious and it is very hard to eat just one.   These tasty bites make great munchies and also are great for gift giving.   Another big plus for the holidays is how simple they are to make.  Need I say more to get you tempted to make this mix for the holidays?

Start by putting  8 candy canes in a food processor with some powdered sugar.  Process until fine.

Next you crush 8 candy canes with a rolling pin.   Pour your cereal in a large bowl.  In a microwave safe bowl, melt together the Minty Chocolate chips, butter and peanut butter.  I could not find the Minty Chocolate chips so I used theses Winter Dark Chocolate & Mint Morsels.

They worked out just fine.  When melted add some peppermint extract to the melted chocolate and pour the chocolate mixture over the cereal.  Next, pour the candy canes you crushed over the chocolate and mix  until the cereal is well coated.  Dump the powdered sugar candy cane mixture over the cereal and mix well.

Your Chex mix is ready.    This recipe is from "Our Best Bites" and can be found here..
