I am always looking for quick and easy things to make with Madaline in the kitchen. Something that is simple, and easy, and that she can help with. And, this chocolate coated cereal treat is just the thing.
And, now that I think about it, you could probably make it with any kind of cereal that you may or may not have on hand. Just so long as it had some body to it - as I am just not sure I would make this with rice krispies - know what I mean? I mean, if you are dealing with rice krispies, then I would make rice krispie treats, but, well, that is a whole other post in and of itself.
*ohh....chocolate covered rice krispie treat...nom, nom!*
I would have to also say that my favorite part of making this was when I got to melt the chocolate. And, it goes from this:
HUGE amount, I actually had to split mine between two cookie sheets to harden. That being said, I am not the most patient person in the world, I ended up putting the cookie sheets in the fridge. It only took about an hour or so.
And, oh, my, GOONNESS!!!! It is heavenly. It's hard not to open up the fridge every time I am in the kitchen and snarf handfuls of this down. Yes....snarf it down by the handful.
TTB Chocolate Coated Cereal Crunchy Goodness
3 cups of Rice Chex
3 cups of Honey Nut Chex
3 cups of Cherrios
1 cup of Pretzel Sticks
1 bag of M&M's
2 - 12oz. bags of White Chocolate Chips
Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. In a double boiler or in a glass bowl over a pot of simmering water, melt White Chocolate chips until smooth. Stir melted chocolate into cereal/pretzel/M&M mixture until all is well combined. Pour onto cookie sheets and spread into a single layer. Allow to sit about 4 hours until chocolate hardens or speed up the process by placing cookie sheets in the fridge. Once hardened, break into chunks and store in a sealed container or food storage bag, in the fridge.
