This sweetly addictive snack mix is a crowd favorite. The perfect bite is a few of the chocolate-peanut buttery pieces of cereal with a piece of butterscotch and a banana. Make ahead and store in an airtight container for up to 3 days, although it won't last long!
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 2/3 cup peanut butter
- 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
- 1/3 malted milk powder
- 8 cups crisp rice cereal, such as Rice Chex
- 2 cups confectioners' sugar
- 2 cups freeze-dried bananas or banana chips
- 1 cup butterscotch chips
Combine the chocolate chips, peanut butter, butter and malted milk in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until smooth. Put the cereal in a large bowl, pour in the melted chocolate-peanut butter and stir until evenly coated.
Allow the cereal to cool slightly, and then tranfer to a large brown paper bag or resealable plastic bag. Add the confectioners' sugar, bananas and butterscotch chips. Tightly close or seal the bag and toss to coat well. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
