I Love Monkey Munch Snack

Monkey Munch
  • 9 cups Chex cereal (any variety)
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  1. Put chex in a large bowl and put aside.
  2. Place chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter into a quart-sized microwavable bowl.
  3. Stir the ingredients together.
  4. Microwave the mixture uncovered for a minute on "high." Stir the mix again and continue to zap in thirty second intervals until it mixes smoothly.
  5. Add the vanilla and stir.
  6. Put combination into a 2-gallon, Ziploc freezer bag.
  7. Add powdered sugar, seal the bag and shake until distributed.
  8. Spread Monkey Munch out on wax paper to cool and dry.
  9. Keep refrigerated in an airtight container for storage.

I have made a similar recipe almost every Christmas since I was a teenager!

I use Wheat, Rice and Corn Chex, veg. oil instead of butter, and a healthy sprinkling in Worcestershire, in addition to the above mix. Mixed in two disposable aluminum roasting pans, baked for at least 2 hours, stirring every 15 minutes, until the cereal is dry and crispy.

I am addicted to this mix, which is called "Chex Mix" or "Scramble" in my family.

Wish I had some now!

I thought you were going to say popcorn.

We used to make a great big batch of Chex Mix every Christmas, using 2 corn, 2 wheat and and 1 rice Chex, a big can (large coffee can size) of fancy mixed nuts, another of peanuts or cashews, depending on the pocket book, and the same amount each of canned French Fried onion rings, potato stix (baby french fries), and pretzles. We doused it with a mixture of melted butter, Worchester sauce, garlic salt and Cajun seasoning.

I'd wrap 1 or 2 lb. coffee cans with wrapping paper and attach a big bow to the top for gifts. In one of our more prosperous years, DH had enough Bailey's cans saved up that we used those for our special friends.
