This is a sweet and easy recipe the kids can help make. Santa and the elves will gobble it up.
Cover 2 baking sheets with waxed paper; set aside. Combine cereal and pretzels in large bowl; set aside.
Place butter, peanut butter and chocolate chips in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave 45 seconds; stir. Continue microwaving 15-45 secondsuntil butter and chocolate are melted. Stir until smooth.
Immediately pour chocolate mixture over cereal in bowl; stir until well coated. Spread mixture evenly in single layer on prepared baking sheets. Refrigerate 20 minutes to set.
Break into bite-sized pieces; divide mixture between 2 large resealable plastic food bags. Pour 1/2 cup powdered sugar into each bag; seal bags. Shake bags until mixture is well coated. Place 1/2 cup chocolate pieces in each bag; seal bags. Carefully shake to distribute chocolate pieces.

when I make this recipe I just coat the honeycomb cereal in the chocolate mixture and mix the pretzles and candies in after this makes a great contrast in flavours
my son has a peanut allergy so i used nutella instead and the taste was amazing!!
My son has a peanut/tree nut allergy and I've used WOW butter in place of nut butters. It's made entirely of soy, but it has a very similar look and texture to peanut butter. You should be able to find it in the peanut/nut butter section of your grocery store.
I have a tree nut allergy. What can be used instead of the nut butters?
Super easy. I used mint flavored M&M's and put them in the ice cream cones - YUM! I'm going to set them out on the kids table at our holiday open house.
My daughters love this. I make it for every holiday, using Halloween M&M, or Fall M&M, or Valentine or Easter M&Ms.

I’m not ashamed to admit that winter is my least favorite season. One frustration is shoveling out my car only to have it not start anyway. In winter there is also the constant back and forth of freezing when outside, but sweating when inside. Then there are the foggy glasses. I could go on.…
