1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.
3.Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

Substitution Peanut butter and chocolate are a favorite flavor combo, but peanut butter lovers can substitute peanut butter chips for the chocolate chips to intensify that flavor.

White Candy Fantasy Clusters

4 cups Rice Chex® cereal
2 cups pretzel sticks, coarsely broken
1 cup cashews, coarsely chopped
1/2 package (16-oz size) vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark)
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1. Spray with cooking spray or grease 13x9-inch pan. In large bowl, mix cereal, pretzels and cashews.
2. In 2-quart saucepan, melt candy coating over low heat, stirring constantly. Pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated. Press in pan; cool slightly.
3. In microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips uncovered on High about 1 minute or until chocolate can be stirred smooth (bowl will be hot). Drizzle chocolate over snack. Let stand about 30 minutes or until chocolate is set. Break into clusters. Store in airtight container.

Chex Brittle

8 cups Rice Chex® cereal
1 cup salted peanuts
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
1 teaspoon vanilla

1. Heat oven to 325°F. Spray two 15x10x1-inch pans with cooking spray.

High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): Heat oven to 300°F. Bake 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes.

Success Be sure to use sweetened condensed milk, not evaporated. Evaporated milk is thinner and does not contain added sugar, which is needed for this recipe. Substitution No baking pans with sides? Line 2 large cookie sheets with heavy duty foil and fold up all the edges so the mix doesn’t slide off.

Mexican Chex Mix

1 bag (3.5 oz) butter-flavor microwave popcorn, popped
8 cups Corn Chex® cereal
4 cups corn chips
2 cups bite-size cheese crackers
3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

2.Seal bag and shake until well coated. Add cheese and taco seasoning mix. Seal bag and shake until well coated.

For extra cheese flavor, use Cheddar-flavored popcorn. Cute, animal shaped crackers are a fun substitute for the square cheese crackers.

The best chex recipe IMHO is the original chex mix BEFORE they decreased the amount of butter in the recipe. YUM!

When I went yesterday the checker said I could not combine the in ad coupon with any other coupons because the in ad coupon was a vendor coupon. The boxes were still $1.25 a piece - which is really good for the Wheat Chex I eat, but not the screaming deal of $0.78 I thought it was going to be. Am I the only one who experienced this problem?
