Mouthfuls of a crunchy, sweet, yummy snack that has the flavors of hot chocolate?  Check it out!

Hot Chocolate Snack Mix
Butter with A Side of Bread has this delicious recipe!  This did not last long in my house!

Ingredients:
8 cups Rice Chex cereal
16 ounce bag miniature marshmallows
2 cups Golden Grahams cereal
5 Tbsp instant hot chocolate mix, divided
1 tsp hot water
1/2 cup butter
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup baking cocoa
Combine the Rice Chex, marshmallows and graham crackers cereal in a large bowl and mix together.

In a different microwave-safe bowl, stir 1 Tbsp of the hot chocolate mix with the water until the mix is dissolved.  Stir in the chocolate chips and butter.  Microwave for 1 minute and stir. Continue microwaving in 20 second intervals until mixture is melted and smooth.  Pour the mixture over the cereal and stir until well coated. 

In a different bowl, combine the powdered sugar, the remaining 4 Tbsp of hot cocoa mix and the baking cocoa.  Once this has been well mixed, pour the dry ingredients over the chocolate-coated cereal and stir until the cereal is well coated.

Cool on waxed paper before storing in an airtight container.


Pour yourself a cup of hot chocolate to eat with the hot chocolate mix...perfect for the chocoholic in the family.  The flavors of hot chocolate come right through, especially on the marshmallows.  It would also be great sent to college student!  You may not want to share though...I love having easy to make yet deeelishus snacks available in the pantry.  I bet you do too!

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet!
