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.
