HOT CHOCOLATE SNACK MIX
Hot Chocolate Snack Mix is a crunchy and delicious treat to munch on this holiday season, full of Chex cereal, chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers!
- 8 cups Rice Chex cereal
- 16 ounce bag miniature marshmallows
- 2 cups mini graham crackers I just used Golden Grahams cereal, but you could probably break up graham crackers into small pieces instead
- 5 Tbsp instant hot chocolate mix divided
- 1 tsp hot water
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup baking cocoa
Combine Rice Chex, marshmallows and graham crackers/cereal in a large bowl and mix together.
In a different microwave-safe bowl, stir 1 Tbsp of the hot chocolate mix with the water until the mix is dissolved. Stir in the chocolate chips, butter and cinnamon.
Microwave for 1 minute and stir. Continue microwaving in 20 second intervals until mixture is melted and smooth. Pour the mixture over the cereal and stir until well coated.
In a different bowl, combine the powdered sugar, the remaining 4 Tbsp of hot cocoa mix and the baking cocoa. Once this has been well mixed, pour the dry ingredients over the chocolate-coated cereal and stir until the cereal is well coated.
Spread in a single layer on waxed paper to cool and then store in an airtight container.
