Author Notes: If dark chocolate isn't your thing, feel free to substitute semisweet or milk chocolate chips. I used Justin's Classic Peanut Butter in this recipe, but you could use any nut butter you prefer.Riddley Gemperlein-Schirm

  • 1 cup bittersweet (or other dark) chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment or waxed paper. Place the cereal in a large bowl and set aside.
  2. Place the chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter is a microwavable-safe bowl and microwave in 30-second increments until you can stir the mixture to a smooth consistency. Then add the vanilla and salt.
  3. Pour the chocolate-peanut butter mixture over the cereal, stirring until evenly coated.
