{Homemade Holiday Gifts} Chocolate Caramel Drizzle Chex

I love delivering homemade goodies to friends and neighbors this time of year.  I usually stick with the traditional cookie plate, however this year I came across this Caramel Chocolate Chex recipe and k new I wanted to try it.  It is incredibly easy to make and is a perfect little snack!

Chocolate Caramel Drizzle Chex

3 cups Corn Chex cereal
3 cups Rice Chex cereal
25 Caramel Chews
2 Tbsp Butter
2 Tbsp Milk
1/4 cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips

In a large, microwavable, bowl mix the 6 cups of Chex cereal.

In a medium bowl, microwave the caramels, butter and milk for 2-3 minutes stopping ever minute or so to stir.  The mixture is done when the caramels are smooth and the mixture is well combined.

Pour the caramel mixture over the cereal and gently stir until evenly coated.   Then, microwave the caramel coated cereal for 3-4 minutes, stopping to stir after each minute, until the mixture just begins to brown.

Spread the cereal mixture on wax paper in order to cool.

In a small bowl, microwave the chocolate chips for about a minute or until smooth and melted.  Drizzle over the cooled cereal.  Let the chocolate harden, then store mixture in an airtight container.

I made a couple batches of this snack and placed them in colorful treat boxes that I found at Michael’s   There were the perfect gift to deliver to neighbors!

    Hi, looks so good that I am going to make this for some of my gifts too. Just a quick question what are caramel chews? Is that just regular wrapped caramels? Thanks.
