  • Small check mark in a circle icon 8 cups Chocolate Lucky Charms™ cereal
  • Small check mark in a circle icon 1 bag (12 oz) semisweet chocolate chips

  • Small check mark in a circle icon 1 cup green candy-coated chocolate candies

  1. Line 18x13x1-inch pan with waxed paper. Pour Chocolate Lucky Charms™ cereal into pan. Pick out all the marshmallows; set aside to add to the mix later. Add cereal pieces to large bowl.
  2. In medium microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips uncovered on High 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. If necessary, continue microwaving and stirring in 10-second increments until chips can be stirred smooth. Pour over cereal pieces in large bowl; toss to evenly coat.
  3. Spread mixture in single layer in pan. Immediately sprinkle with nonpareils. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until chocolate is set.
  4. Gently break up mixture into bite-size pieces, and place in large bowl. Toss in reserved marshmallows and chocolate candies. Store covered in airtight container.

Tips

  • To avoid overheating the chocolate chips, microwave until just starting to melt, then stir until smooth.
  • For a colorful rainbow snack mix, use rainbow candy sprinkles instead of green and white nonpareils, and multicolored candy-coated chocolate candies. Or make the snack mix even more green by using all green nonpareils.
