Instructions

  1. Pour Chex cereal in a large bowl.
  2. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave. I start by cooking for 45 minutes, stir and then add another 30-45 seconds until there are no lumps.
  3. Pour chocolate over Chex cereal and stir to cover thoroughly.
  4. Pour 1/2 the hot coco over the Cereal mixture and stir. Add remaining hot coco and stir until all the cereal is covered. Alternatively, you can put the melted covered Chex in a large plastic bag and then pour the hot coco powder into the bag… then shake until well coated. (The kids love to help with this!).
  5. Spread the mixture out on a cookie sheet. I like to cover my cookie sheet with parchment paper for easier cleanup.
  6. Melt melting chocolate (or almond bark) in the microwave, following package instructions. Blend in food coloring and then drizzle over the cereal.
  7. Sprinkle on marshmallows and Halloween sprinkles. The trick is to sprinkle on all the decorative candies while the almond bark is still hot so the sprinkles and marshmallows stick to the snack mix.
  8. Allow all the chocolate and candy to cool and harden.
  9. Place in a bowl or package however you’d like.
