1/2 cup creamy peanut butter  

1 (11.5-ounce) package (1 1/2 cups) real milk chocolate chips

1 cup powdered sugar

1 cup red and green candy-coated milk chocolate candies

 

Ice cream cones, if desired

How to make

  1. STEP 1

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
