Chocolate Lovers Peanut Butter Snack Mix

We are big Reese's Puffs fans in this house... The kids don't request a lot, but this is one thing that my oldest son asks for all the time. Combine that with the fact that I usually have cocoa puffs (generic) on hand I knew this snack was going to be a hit the second I layed eyes on it. And it was... just try to keep your hands out of this mix! Kind of like puppy chow on steroids. Yep - it's a good one!

Chocolate Lovers Peanut Butter Snack Mix
(recipe found on

3 cups cocoa puffs cereal
3 cups reese's puffs cereal
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups cocktail peanuts
2 cups vanilla baking chips or mini marshmallows

In large bowl mix cereals, set aside. In small bowl mix powdered sugar and cocoa powder, set aside. In microwaveable bowl melt chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered for 1 minute on high. Stir and microwave 30 seconds longer until it can be stirred smoothly. Stir in vanilla and pour over cereal mixture, tossing gently to coat all cereal. Pour half of the powdered sugar into a ziplock bag and add cereal, shake until coated. Pour in remaining powdered sugar and close. Shake again until completely covered. Store in an airtight container.
