What You Will Need

  • 9 cups Chex cereal
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 bag Easter M and M candies
  • 1 bag mini marshmallows


  • Measure the cereal into a large bowl and set aside. Then line a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside.
  • In a microwave-safe medium bowl, microwave the chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter for 1 minute then stir. Continue microwaving in 30-second intervals and stirring in between until the mixture is completely melted.
  • Once melted, add vanilla and stir well.
  • Pour the peanut butter and chocolate mixture over the cereal and gently mix until the cereal is completely coated.
  • Transfer the mixture to a 2-gallon ziplock bag and add the confectioner’s sugar. Seal the bag and then shake until all the cereal is coated. This is a great place to get the kids involved in the recipe.
  • Spread the cereal out onto the baking sheet to cool. Sprinkle M and M candies and mini marshmallows throughout the cereal.
  • Once cool, be sure to store in an airtight container.
