Chocolate-covered gobbledy-gook

Recycling is important. So yes, this is a repost from last December. But you do want to make this again, right? I do … and so do the kids. Enjoy!

 

Miscellaneous ingredients.
Have any M&Ms, corn or rice Chex, peanuts and Cheerios sitting around? Make this recipe. It’s quick-n-easy. Kids love it. Husbands love it, too. And ok, I’ll admit it … mommies love it.

Step one: In a medium saucepan, combine 1 cup butter, 1 cup peanut butter and a bag of chocolate chips. Slowly melt together over lowest heat setting (or use your microwave).

Step two: In a large bowl, combine various dry goods and your favorite snacks. I used Corn Chex, Cheerios, Christmas-colored M&Ms and peanuts. Rice noodles, mini pretzels or cashews would add tasty crunch, too.

Step three: Pour melted chocolate mixture over the dry ingredients and gently combine with a rubber spatula. When all ingredients are coated with chocolate mixture, spread on a parchment paper-lined sheet pan and allow chocolate to set. Store in an airtight container.

Quick … easy … crowd-pleasing … and best of all, covered in chocolate.

Happy snacking!
