Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 9 cups Chex cereal
  • 4 tablespoons butter + 1-2 tablespoon extra if needed, read note below
  • 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon for topping, optional

Instructions

  • In a small bowl add powdered sugar, brown sugar, white granulated sugar, and cinnamon; set aside.
  • Add chocolate chips & 4 tablespoons of butter in a small heat-safe bowl and melt in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between. This takes me about 1 - 1 1/2 minutes usually. 
  • NOTE - depending on the chocolate and/or your microwave the chocolate might be a little chunky and not smooth from cooking too long or too high of heat. Don't worry! After a minute of heating, stir in an additional tablespoon of melted butter and stir well into the chocolate. Use an additional tablespoon if needed.
  • Add cereal into a large bowl, set aside.
  • Pour chocolate over cereal and stir until cereal is completely coated. Once coated, pour sugar mixture on top and mixture together to coat the chocolate covered cereal.
  • Once completely covered add an additional teaspoon of cinnamon on top of cereal and stir together one more time.
  • Serve immediately or store in the Ziplock bag for later. We love to keep ours stored in the fridge but on the counter works too!
