Chex Mix Clusters

These treats are unbelievably easy to make and don’t require many ingredients or steps.  They’re also extremely addictive – so beware…  

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 cups Rice Chex Cereal
  • 4 cups Corn Chex Cereal
  • 2 cups salted pretzels
  • 1 large (24 oz.) bag white chocolate chips, melted

HOW TO MAKE IT

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the cereals and pretzels and toss together with your hands
  • Pour the white chocolate chips into a medium glass bowl and microwave for 30 seconds
    • Remove from the microwave and stir well… then repeat
    • Keep heating the chocolate chips in 30 second intervals until the chocolate is just melted
    • It’s really important to heat the chocolate slowly because it can burn very easily!
      • Alternatively, you can melt the chocolate chips on the stove by putting them in a glass bowl that sits over a pot of simmering water
      • Here are some tips on melting chocolate
  • Pour the melted chocolate over the cereal and pretzels – toss the mixture with your hands until the cereal and pretzels are well coated with chocolate
  • While everything is still warm and soft, form small clusters and place them on parchment paper lined baking sheets
  • Place the clusters in the fridge (or outside if it’s a cold day) to harden – should only take 5-10 minutes
    • If your clusters aren’t sticking together because your mixture has cooled too much, place some of the mixture in a glass bowl and reheat for 30 seconds – that should melt the chocolate enough to get things sticking together again
