Delicious but you will want to add a tiny bit of oil or shortening after you melt the chocolate chips because it was to thick to drizzle. I also doubled the ingredients that are drizzled, it felt like it covered the entire surface that way.
Hi Erin, Adding shortening or a little oil can be necessary depending on the quality of chips. You are my kind of person. I always love to double toppings on recipes. YUM!
If I were to make this to fill goody bags for coworkers and I didn't give the bags out until the next day, would the chex get soggy or stale?
These is a great snack mix to give away. I have never had a problem with the Chex Mix becoming soggy or stale as long as its kept in an air tight container.
Could this be made nut free.....what subs would you suggest?
Hi Diane, Better than Sex Chex Mix does not have nuts in the recipe. If you are referring to the Holiday Chex Mix, you could omit the nuts if you wish and make it as listed. They are both wonderful recipes that are addicting!
Try cookie butter or another bite sized candy bar/candy rather than the peanut butter cups....or maybe coconut.
Oh that sounds really good!
