Christmas Chex Mix
What's in it
1 box Chex cereal (I prefer the rice or the kinds with all three mixed together)
1 jar (smaller one, not big one) Nutella or other chocolate nut spread (TJ's has a chocolate almond spread)
1 stick butter
1 to 2 cups confectioners sugar
red and green M&M's
chocolate covered peanuts
yogurt covered raisins
any other tasty bit you think would be good in the mix
How it's made
In a large microwave safe bowl melt Nutella and butter at 50% power until you can easily stir to mix together. Stir in Chex cereal to coat with chocolate mixture. If you think you have too much chocolate mix, you can add in peanuts as well, or another nut, and coat with chocolate. Transfer mix to large ziplock bag (may need to do in two batches). Add confectioners sugar to bag and shake to coat (I add in increments). Transfer to a large bowl and add M&M's and any other additions, and toss to combine. Enjoy!
Note: you can also sub Peanut Butter for the Nutella, and coat peanuts with the chocolate/PB mixture as well.
