Rice Krispy treats are one of the best desserts of all time. Recently I had the honor of making a batch for a co-worker’s birthday and they got me thinking. There’s so much more you could do with that marshmallow-y goodness.
I decided to experiment the other day as I was making Christmas treats for my neighbors.
You know I love salty and sweet, so that’s exactly what I went for.
Chex, pretzels, M&Ms and marshmallows = one fabulous salty, sweet treat.
Gooey Chocolate Pretzel Chex
2 cups rice Chex
2 cups corn Chex
3 cups mini pretzels
1 tbsp butter
3 cups marshmallows
1/2 cup M&Ms
In a large bowl combine chex and pretzels.
In another large bowl melt butter in microwave. Once butter is melted, stir in marshmallows. Melt marshmallow mixture in microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds, stirring after 45 seconds.
Pour chex and pretzels into melted marshmallows, stirring until evenly coated.
Transfer chex mix to a silpat or wax paper. Sprinkle M&Ms over top and let cool. Once cooled, break into pieces and enjoy.
This stuff is seriously addicting and way too easy to make!
