Chocolate Peanut Butter Chex Mix

This is the “Plex” mix I made for my son’s Yo Gabba Gabba party. Since chocolate and peanut butter is one of my favorite food pairings, I was all for it. I thought it would be a popular snack for the youngsters, but it was equally popular with the adults. We now have a gigantic bag of m&m’s that are missing all the yellow candies. Oh, what to do with them???

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chex Mix


4 c Rice Chex cereal
2 c Wheat Chex cereal
1 c vanilla baking chips
½ c semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 c peanut butter chips
1 c chocolate candies (like M&Ms)
2 c mini marshmallows


  1. Line two baking sheets with waxed paper. Spread both cereals in an even layer on both sheets (mix up the cereals on the baking sheets.)
  2. Melt vanilla baking chips over the stove in a double boiler or in the microwave in a microwave-safe bowl at 50% power, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Drizzle over the cereal.
  3. Repeat with the semi-sweet chips, and then with the peanut butter chips.
  4. Let the cereal cool and harden.
  5. Break the cereal into small pieces and place in a large bowl. Add the chocolate candies and mini-marshmallows, and toss. Store in an air-tight container.

    Hey I making this for my daughters birthday party but I’m going to try everything minus the peanut butter chips and replace the m&m’s with reeses pieces. I figured it will still have that peanut butter taste and there will be more yellows in the reeses pieces lol. Just thought I would share.
