Serves 10people
Ingredients
Snack Mix:
8
cups Chocolate Chex cereal
1
cup powdered sugar
1/3
cup hot cocoa mix (with marshmallows) (1 1/2 packets)
2
cups good quality milk chocolate chips
2
tbsp coconut oil
White Chocolate Marshmallows:
1
cup white chocolate chips
1
tbsp coconut oil
2
cups miniature marshmallows
Optional additions: 1/2 cup dehydrated marshmallows, 1 cup Sno-Cap candies, 1 cup coarsely broken up pirouette cookies
Directions
1.
Prep: Line a large sheet pan with a Silpat liner or parchment paper and set aside. Set out a large (2-gallon) freezer bag and a very large bowl.
2.
Cereal: Measure out the cereal into the large bowl and set aside.
3.
Hot Cocoa and Powdered Sugar: In a small bowl, add the hot cocoa mix and powdered sugar. Stir to combine. Pour into the prepared freezer bag.
4.
Chocolate: In medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, add the milk chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons coconut oil. Microwave, in bursts of 15 seconds, stirring in between each burst for 15 seconds, or until chocolate is fully melted and smooth. Once fully melted and smooth, pour over the measured cereal. Gently stir to generously coat the cereal in the melted chocolate.
5.
Coat Cereal: Pour cereal into the bag on top of the powdered sugar and hot cocoa mix. Seal the bag (do not squeeze air out of the bag) and then shake to coat the cereal in the mix. Once cereal is generously coated, pour back into a large bowl or serving bowl. Set aside.
6.
White Chocolate Covered Marshmallows: In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the white chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon coconut oil. Melt, in bursts of 15 seconds, stirring in between each burst for 15 seconds, or until white chocolate is fully melted and smooth. Stir the marshmallows into the white chocolate until marshmallows are well coated. Spread out the marshmallows onto the prepared pan. Put the pan in the fridge or freezer for about 10 minutes or let the tray stand at room temperature for 30 minutes until chocolate is set. Gently break apart and add to the serving bowl.
7.
Finish Mix: If desired, add any other toppings such as the dehydrated marshmallows, Sno-Cap candies, or broken up pirouette cookies.
