Prep Time 10 minutes
Author Sam Merritt

Ingredients

  • 5 cups rice chex cereal
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 8 Tbsp salted butter cut into 8 pieces
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups crushed or chopped Easter candy divided (such as M&Ms, Robins' Eggs, chopped fun-size chocolate bars, etc. I wouldn't recommend fruity candy like Starburst or jellybeans)
  • 3 cups 10x sugar

Instructions

  • Measure out your cereal into a large bowl (make sure it is large enough that you can easily stir the cereal with a spatula)
  • Line two cookie sheets with wax paper and set aside (this is where you will spread the cereal to dry after coating)
  • In medium-sized, microwave safe bowl, melt together your white chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter. Do this by microwaving at 15-second intervals, stirring well after every 15 seconds.
  • Once mixture is completely melted and smooth, stir in vanilla extract.
  • Pour mixture over the chex mix, using a spatula to scrape out all of the contents. Use your spatula to stir the cereal and peanut butter mixture until the cereal is entirely covered.
  • Stir in about 1 3/4 cups of your crushed candy.
  • Transfer half of the mixture to a large ziploc bag. Add half of the powdered sugar, seal the bag, and shake well until the cereal is completely covered.
  • Pour the contents of the bag onto one of your prepared cookie sheets, use a spatula to spread the contents out over the surface area.
  • Repeat the process with the remaining cereal and sugar.
  • Allow the cereal to cool so that it isn't sticky for at least 30 minutes.
  • Transfer to serving dish and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup crushed cereal.
  • Serve!
