Check Mex Snowflake Candy

I first made this devilish snack in Jr. High Home Eco. I've been addicted to it ever since. Luckily, I don't often have the "need" to purchase the huge amount of Chex cereal this calls for, so I can keep my cravings at a minimum! But, if you want a great snack for a party, or for school, here it is!

You can use this snack in a Christmas theme by calling them "Snowflakes"!

Chex Mex Snowflake Candy

9 cups Chex (see, I told you it was a lot! Actually, it's a little less then a 14oz box)
2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup butter
2 t. vanilla
1 1/2 c powdered sugar
Large Ziplock bag or huge bowl

Place the chex cereal in the ziplock or bowl. In a large bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter on high for 1 minute, stir. ontine stirring at 30 second intervals, stirring each time, until melted.
Add vanilla and stir.
Pour mixture over the cereal in the bag.
Shake until evenly coated.
Add powdered sugar to bag, and shake again.
Spread cereal out on wax paper and allow chocolate to set.

Eat by the handfuls!


  1. I better not make this, it is addicting and my hubs is allergic to PB so I would be the only one eating it. Love it though!

  2. Krista,
    This looks great!
    Thank you so much for spotting the instructional error on the PBpopcorn. I appreciate it! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  3. I LOVE these!! I make them whenever we have a family movie night at my house to go with the popcorn. Muddy buddies, puppy chow, snowflakes whatever you want to call them.. they are delish! he he
