Do you want an easy snack to make for the whole family?   For under $20 you can create a sweet crunchy snack in just a few minutes purchasing the ingredients at your local grocery store. 

The chocolate topping is optional (step 3), I personally don’t add it and the mix still tastes great.     The actual recipe is listed below as well as a link to the recipe from Chex cereal.      My nieces and nephews give this a two thumbs up.


3/4 cup packed brown sugar
6 tablespoons butter or margarine
3 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
4 cups Corn Chex cereal
4 cups Rice Chex cereal
1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips


Step 1   Cover cookie sheet with waxed paper. In large microwavable bowl, microwave brown sugar, butter and corn syrup uncovered on High 1 to 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute, until melted and smooth. Stir in baking soda until dissolved. Stir in cereals.

Step 2  Microwave on High 3 minutes, stirring each minute. Spread on cookie sheet to cool, about 10 minutes. Break into bite-size pieces.

Step 3   In microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips uncovered on High about 1 minute 30 seconds or until chocolate can be stirred smooth (bowl will be hot). Drizzle chocolate over snack. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until chocolate is set.
