Reese's Chex Mix

I don't know about you, but I love Chocolate & Peanut Butter.  I thought this might be good for the Bake Shoppe/Sale at our English Tea.

1 12.8 oz box Chocolate flavored Chex cereal (about 8 cups)
1 cup roasted, lightly salted peanuts
2 cups powdered sugar
16 oz chocolate CandiQuik
1 cup Reese's peanut butter chips
1 8 oz bag Reese's Minis
1 cup Reese's Pieces
20 Reese's Miniatures, halved
Additional peanuts, peanut butter chips, and Reese's.

Combine Chex cereal and peanuts in a very large bowl and set aside.

Place powdered sugar into a two gallon size ziploc bag and set aside.

Put a couple long sheets of wax paper on your counter top.

Break up CandiQuik, place in a large glass bowl and sprinkle with peanut butter chips. Melt for 1 minute in the microwave.  Stir gently and heat again for 30 seconds to 1 minute.  Stir again and it should be completely melted and smooth.

Drizzle the melted chocolate - peanut butter mixture over the top of the Chex and peanuts and toss gently to combine. Make sure it is well coated.

Transfer the chocolate-coated cereal mixture into the ziploc bag with powdered sugar.

Close the bag tightly and gently shake until the mixture is fully coated.

Spread the contents of bag onto the wax paper and let set up for 15 minutes.

Sprinkle on the Reese's Pieces, Reese's Miniatures and the Reese's halves that you cut up earlier, and additional peanuts, peanut butter chips, and Reese's Pieces if desired.  (I did as it makes it more yummy!!!)

Toss gently to combine.

Store in an airtight container for up to one week.
