Ingredients

  • 8 cups Chocolate Chex® cereal (1 box)
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 3 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, MINI size
  • 1 cup Snickers Bites
  • 1 cup MINIATURE marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup caramel bits
  • 1 Tbsp heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup MILK chocolate baking chips (or more if you wish)
  • 1/2 cup vanilla (white) chocolate baking chips

Instructions

  1. Into large microwavable bowl, measure cereal; set aside. Line cookie sheet with waxed paper or foil.
  2. In 2-cup microwavable measuring cup, 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. Pour caramel mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Microwave on High 3 minutes, stirring every minute. Spread on cookie sheet. Cool 10 minutes. Break into bite-sized pieces.
  3. Make sure Chex mixture is cool to the touch (so candy doesn't melt.) Evenly sprinkle mini peanut butter cups, Snickers, Kisses and miniature marshmallows over Chex mixture.
  4. In small microwavable bowl, microwave caramel baking bits and cream uncovered on High about 1 minute or until chips can be stirred smooth. Use a spoon or fork to drizzle over snack. Microwave the milk chocolate baking chips next, starting with 20-seconds and stirring, then at 20 second intervals until the mixture is completely smooth (microwave temps vary, so watch the chocolate and stir frequently until it's of drizzling consistency). Drizzle over the snack mixture. Then microwave the vanilla (white) baking chips in 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth, and drizzle that over the snack mixture. (Note: The vanilla and milk chocolate chips should not need cream added.)
  5. Refrigerate until set. Break apart and store in tightly covered container.

Enjoy!!

  2. Form dough into 1-inch balls and roll each one in a bowl of another 1/4 cup sugar. Place balls 1 to 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and flattened with the palm of your hand.
  3. Bake @ 350 for 6-8 min my sister bakes hers for 6 minutes to make them softer. She also doubles her recipe...we are a big family and they are really that good!!!
  4. For the Frosting: My sisters uses store bought cream cheese frosting in the tub and if traveling...places the cookies in the freezer for a bit to get the frosting to hardened up! If you have a favorite frosting recipe...by all means use it!!! I'm sure they are awesome with frosting as well, maybe even some candy sprinkles on top!

  • 6 oz. evaporated milk
  • 4 oz. white chocolate instant pudding mix (just the mix)
  • 3.5 - 4 cups old fashioned oats

  1. Combine sugar, butter, milk and pudding mix in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Stir in oats. Remove from heat. Cool for at least 15 minutes. When cool, stir in M&M's. Don't do this too soon or they will melt - make sure it's room temperature first. Drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment or wax paper. Put the pan back in the fridge for quicker cooling (or if cold outside...in the garage like I did)! When they are cool, munch away!
