A sleepover isn't complete unless it has an addictive snack like this chex mix that is literally better than anything and everything!
Today's Sunday Supper Movement event is hosted by Marion of Life Tastes Good and the theme is SLEEPOVER FOODS.
I have not yet braved having sleepovers for my kids and their friends at my house, but Nick and I do love to do movie nights with the older kiddos where we camp out in the living room with snacks galore and blankets and pillows. Before I had Mason, we did them quite regularly and I would always make some kind of a snack food - typically either popcorn or chex mix.
When I found this recipe, I was a little skeptical. It seemed like an overwhelming amount of different sweets and I was hoping that it wouldn't be too much. Luckily, it wasn't. Oh my goodness gracious was it amazing. I am not the biggest fan of marshmallows and even I liked them in this (although I wouldn't mind trying with the little mallow bits you can put in hot cocoa). It was one of those snacks you can't help but keep eating even after you know you should stop LOL. My kids absolutely loved it. They said it was the best chex mix they had ever had.
I am excited for all the new recipes that are being shared today because even though I haven't braved a sleepover, we like to do family sleepovers and we love to try new foods :)
What you need:
- 1 box (12.8 box) Rice Chex cereal
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 6 Tbsp. unsalted butter
- 3 Tbsp. light corn syrup
- 1 cup mini Reese's peanut butter cups
- 1 cup mini marshmallows
- 1/2 cup caramel bits
- 1 Tbsp. heavy cream
- 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
- 1 tsp. coarse salt
- Pour cereal into a large microwaveable bowl. Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper, foil, parchment paper, or a silicone mat. Set aside.
- In a small microwaveable bowl, heat brown sugar, butter, and corn syrup for 1 to 2 minutes on high, stirring after 1 minute until smooth and butter is completely melted.
- Pour mixture over cereal and stir until coated evenly.
- Place cereal in microwave and heat on high for 3 minutes, stirring after every minute.
- Spread cereal onto the cookie sheet and even out. Allow to cool for 10 minutes and then break into bite-size pieces.
- After it is cool to the touch, sprinkle mini Reese's and marshmallows over the top.
- In a small microwaveable bowl, heat caramel bits and heavy cream for 1 minute and then stir until smooth. Drizzle over cereal.
- Repeat with both the milk chocolate chips and white chocolate chips.
- While the caramel and chocolate is still wet, sprinkle with salt.
- Refrigerate until the chocolate is set and then break apart once again.
- Store in an airtight container.
