Peppermint Bark Chex Mix

I've had a similar recipe to this one saved for YEARS and finally got around to trying it out. This Chex mix is perfect for the holidays and is the easiest thing to make.
Whenever I come across these sugary, cereal treats I always think they're going to take an hour to make, but it's more like 10 minutes. The result is perfect and it will definitely remind you of eating some peppermint bark, except with a crunch!
This would be a great last-minute treat for neighbors, family and friends. Be sure to try it out this holiday season!

Peppermint Bark Chex Mix
Adapted from Chex.com
6-7 cups Rice Chex cereal
1 (12 oz.) bag white vanilla baking chips
1 (4 oz.) large peppermint candy stick or 16 unwrapped miniature candy canes, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1. Pour cereal in large mixing bowl. Line cookie sheet with foil or waxed paper.
2. In microwavable bowl, microwave white vanilla baking chips uncovered on HIGH about 1 minute 30 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds, until chips can be stirred smooth. Stir in half the crushed peppermint candy, about 1/4 cup.
3. Pour over cereal; toss to evenly coat. Spread mixture in single layer on cookie sheet. Immediately sprinkle with remaining candy.
4. Melt semisweet chocolate chips in microwave on HIGH 50 to 60 seconds or until chips can be stirred smooth; drizzle over top with a fork. Let stand in refrigerator until set, about 5 minutes. Gently break into clusters. Store in airtight container.


*For easy drizzling, spoon the melted chips into a small food-storage bag. Snip off one tiny bottom corner and squeeze the melted chips over the cereal mixture.
