 This Chex Mix is over the top delicious!
The calories are no doubt over the top as well, but when you feel like splurging this is your go-to recipe!

Sinful Chex Mix

8 cups Chocolate Chex cereal
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
6 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup mini Peanut Butter Cups
1 cup mini marshmallows, if desired
1/2 cup caramel bits
1 tablespoon heavy cream
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1 tablespoon Fleur de Sel

In a large glass bowl, measure the cereal and set aside.
Line a large cookie sheet with waxed paper
In a two cup glass bowl, place brown sugar, butter and corn syrup. Microwave for one minute remove and stir.  Place back in microwave for an additional minute, remove and stir until melted and smooth.  Stir in baking soda until dissolved.  Pour caramel mixture over the cereal and stir gently but thoroughly until evenly coated.  Microwave for 3 minutes, stirring after each minute.  Spread on prepared cookie sheet and cool for 10 minutes.  Break into bite sized pieces.

Make sure the Chex mix is cool to the touch.  Spread the peanut butter cups and marshmallows (if desired) over the entire surface.

Microwave the caramel bits and cream for a minute or until the bits can be stirred smooth.  Use a spoon or fork to drizzle this mixture over the entire surface.

Microwave the milk chocolate chips, at 20 second intervals, stirring frequently until smooth.  Drizzle this over the Chex mixture.

Finally, melt the white chocolate chips in 20 second intervals, stirring frequently until smooth.  Drizzle over the entire Chex mix surface.  

Working quickly, sprinkle the entire surface with Fleur de Sel.

Do enjoy this sweet/salty snack!
