Ingredients

  • 1 box Chocolate Chex cereal
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (6 oz)
  • 1 bag of marshmallows (454 g)
  • ½¾ cup crushed peppermint candies

Instructions

  1. Place cereal in a large mixing bowl and set aside.
  2. Grease a 13×9 inch baking pan and set aside.
  3. Using a large double boiler or large bowl for the microwave, heat up butter and chocolate chips until smooth (5-7 minutes medium heat on stove top or 1 minute on medium high in microwave).
  4. Add marshmallows and gently stir until coated.
  5. Continue stirring until the marshmallows melt completely (5 minutes on stove top, if using microwave, heat uncovered on medium high for 1-2 minutes).
  6. Once the mixture is smooth and melted, stir in cereal very gently until coated, taking caution not to break it up too much.
  7. Press the cereal mixture evenly into pan using a large silver spoon (cooled with ice cold water – it will help you spread the mix easier).
  8. Sprinkle with crushed peppermint candy, using desired amount.
  9. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  10. Cut into squares with a large sharp knife and serve.
