  • 5 cups Corn Chex cereal
  • 2 cups chocolate chips *I use semi-sweet
  • 1 cup peanut butter *creamy
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 marshmallows *large size
  • Powdered sugar


  • In a large bowl, pour cereal in. Set aside.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, mix chocolate chips, peanut butter, vanilla, and marshmallows  Microwave in 45 second increments until chocolate mixture is smooth and melted.
  • Pour chocolate over cereal and mix until coated.
  • Pour into an 8×8 dish.
  • Push mixture down firmly if you want it to be more of a “bar”, or you can leave it thick and “chunky” like I did.
  • Sprinkle desired amount of powdered sugar on top.
  • Either place in fridge to set up firm, or leave in an air tight container, room temperature, for a more soft bar.
