  • Allow to cook for an additional minute.
  • In a very large bowl, add the chex cereal and then dump in the peanut butter mixture.
  • Fold with a large spatula until all of the cereal is coated, being careful not to break up the cereal.
  • Spread the cereal out onto wax or parchment paper to cool.
  • In a microwave safe dish, add the two chips and microwave on high for 20 second intervals, stirring occasionally until melted.
  • Drizzle over cereal and allow everything to set.


You can do just chocolate if you don't prefer the butterscotch
