CHOCOLATE-PEANUT BUTTER CHEX MIX
Yield: 8 servings
1 (3.75-ounce) bag traditional
Chex Mix or similar snack mix
8 ounces dark or milk chocolate, chopped
6 ounces (a heaping ¾ cup) peanut-butter chips
1 tablespoon shortening or coconut oil, as needed
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread out snack mix. Gently melt chocolate in a double boiler, stirring frequently, or in a microwave on the lowest setting, stirring frequently.
Meanwhile, melt the peanut-butter chips in the microwave, stirring every 20 seconds. If the peanut butter mixture is too thick to drizzle, stir in 2 to 3 teaspoons of shortening or coconut oil.
Pour melted chocolate and peanut butter mixture over the snack mix, and stir to thoroughly combine. Spread out in a single layer and let sit at room temperature until set, 1 to 2 hours. If it is still soft, it may be refrigerated. Break into bite-sized pieces before serving. If soft, store in refrigerator.
