This Over The Top Chocolate Chex Mix has it all! Chocolate Chex, mini peanut butter cups, marshmallows drizzled with caramel and milk & white chocolate. It’s completely naughty, evil and irresistible!
I first posted this recipe almost six years ago and decided it is most definitely worthy of some updated pictures and a chance to be in the spotlight again.
It’s sadly been buried away deep in my archives and probably not seen by many of you. With the Super Bowl just two days away, I thought this is the perfect indulgent treat that you absolutely need at your party.
I saw this all over Pinterest several years ago it was called Better than Sex Chex Mix.
When I posted this back in 2012 my three youngest boys were 8, 10 and 12 and I didn’t want to be posting any recipe with “better than sex” in it’s name. I remember thinking what will they think if they see this post . . .I’ll be so embarrassed (lol!).
I guess I was trying to keep my boys naive and innocent, and sheltered from the outside world. I know, I’m kind of lame.
So I took the liberty of changing the name and even six years later I’m sticking with it. . . Over the Top Chocolate Chex Mix. Trust me when I tell you that name fits it perfectly, but you can call it whatever you want.
This stuff is so sinful and no one should be left alone in a room with it, especially not me.
Funny story about this. I made this yesterday and put it down in my cold storage room for the chocolate to set. I brought it upstairs last night, filled a dish and set it out for a party I had at my house. This morning I couldn’t stop thinking about it the whole time I was at the gym. I told my friend about it and was so excited knowing I still had half a cookie sheet of this yumminess tucked away safely in my cold storage room.
I got my boys off to school and got myself ready for the day. As I was heading out the door to my son’s elementary school, I took a detour to the basement to get the cookie sheet so I could fill a bag of it to take to my friend, and of course, so I could eat some and gain back all those calories I burned at the gym. I flipped the light on and looked right in the spot where I had left it last night and IT WAS GONE! I knew in a second where I would find it. I walked into the family room and there it was, the cookie sheet, completely empty.
First, I wanted to cry, then I wanted to strangle my son, and finally I wanted to cry some more. Yes that definitely put a damper on my day!
Just be warned, before you know it you’ll have eaten have the pan and you won’t want to stop!Print
BE SURE AND PIN THIS TO YOUR PINTEREST BOARDS SO YOU CAN MAKE IT LATER!
