It was out last camp activity before heading off to camp at the end of the month so I made the girls a couple of different kinds of Chex mix for a treat. They were both delicious but I think this was my favorite. You can find the original recipe on the Chex website.
6 cups Rice Chex cereal (I used a combo of cereals since I didn’t have enough Rice Chex)
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons corn syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 ounce white baking chocolate or 1/4 cup vanilla milk chips
1 – 2 teaspoons colored edible glitter or sugar sprinkles
1 Measure cereal into large microwavable bowl. Line cookie sheet with waxed paper or foil.
2 Microwave butter on high 30 seconds or until melted. Add sugar and corn syrup and microwave on high 30 seconds until mixture is heated and can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour over cereal, stirring until evenly coated.
3 Microwave uncovered on high 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and mix well.
4 Spread on lined cookie sheet. Microwave white chocolate on high 30 seconds or until it can be stirred smooth, drizzle over top of cereal, sprinkle with glitter or sugar. (I skipped the white chocolate because I was low on time and knew it wouldn’t have time to set before I needed to leave but I did sprinkle with sprinkles. It was delicious without the chocolate so I’m sure it would be even better with it.)
Here’s how I served it to the girls, in these adorable containers from Pick Your Plum:
