Madi's Monkey Munch

First off, I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! It was certainly a nice holiday and I have one very happy girl.

Anyway, this Christmas Eve I made some yummy kid-tastic chex mix and I thought I would share my recipe. I'm sure everyone has heard of monkey munch. This recipe has been around for awhile and although I love it I can't make it with the peanut butter because of Mad and her allergies. So I kind of fiddled with it a little and everyone just loved it so I thought I would share it with all of you. So here we go!
Madi's Monkey Munch

6 cups of rice Chex cereal
4 cups of pretzel sticks
2 cups of small marshmallows
1/2 bag of milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup of powdered sugar
2 tablespoons of butter

Preheat oven to 200 degrees. When oven is preheated chop up the butter into four pieces and drop those pieces into a 9x13 pan. Put pan with just the butter in the oven until the butter is melted. When butter is melted add Chex cereal and pretzels in the pan. Mix the chex and pretzels in with the butter. Bake in the oven for 20 mins.
When there is about 5 mins left on your timer, put the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and melt in the microwave in 30 seconds increments stirring the chocolate every 30 seconds.
When the chex mix in done in the oven, pull it out and give it a few minutes to cool. Then add your marshmallows, stirring them into the mix. Then, take your melted chocolate and drizzle it over your chex mix. Finish it off with a dusting of powdered sugar. Refrigerate for 2 hours. Break it apart, put it in a party bowl and watch your kids go crazy!
