But it has Cheerios and Chex in it, so it is kinda healthy, right?




What you'll need:

  • 5 Cups Cheerios
  • 5 Cups Corn Chex
  • 2 Cups Salted Peanuts (skip peanuts if there are allergies in the class)
  • 1 Large Bag of M&M's
  • 1 Package (10oz) Miniature Pretzels
  • 2 Packages (12oz each) Vanilla Baking Chips
  • 3 Tbsp Vegetable Oil

* One full batch will be enough for an entire class to share. If you want to make a smaller amount, just use 1/2 of what is listed above for each ingredient.


How to make it:


  • In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients; set aside.
  • In a large microwave-safe bowl, heat chips and oil on medium-high for 2 minutes, stirring once. Microwave on high for 10 seconds; stir until smooth. It is easy to over-cook it, so be sure to check on it often.
  • Pour melted chips over cereal mixture and mix well. Be sure to stir down to the bottom of the bowl to make sure it coats evenly.
  • Spread the mixture onto waxed paper.
  • Let it sit to cool 15-20 minutes until the chocolate is no longer sticky.
  • Store in airtight container.
  • YIELD: 5 quarts.
