A couple weekends ago, John and I were stuck inside due to a big snowstorm. I had just received a copy of Despicable Me 2, and had the ingredients on hand to make Chex Minion Munch, so we decided to have a fun movie day with Kayleigh.
I headed into the kitchen, and quickly whipped up a batch of Chex Minion Munch. It was so easy to make, and I just love the chocolate/peanut butter/banana flavor combination. The recipe calls for candy-coated chocolate candies, so I picked out all the blue and yellow ones from my bag and used those to make it more “minion-like”.
Neither John or I had seen the first Despicable Me movie yet, so we rented it through Amazon and watched it, followed by the second one. We loved both of the movies, and had a great lazy day inside. Aren’t those minions super cute?!
This Chex Minion Munch is a great way to add a little fun to family movie night! Here’s how to make it:
Chex Minion Munch
2 cups Honey Nut Chex® cereal
2 cups Chocolate Chex® cereal
2 cups Banana Nut Cheeerios® cereal
1 cup dry-roasted peanuts
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 cup freeze-dried banana chips
1/2 cup candy-coated chocolate candies
In large microwaveable bowl, measure cereals and peanuts.
In 2-cup microwavable measuring cup, microwave butter until melted, about 30 seconds. Stir in brown sugar and peanut butter; microwave 30 seconds longer or until mixture is boiling. Pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated.
Microwave uncovered on High about 3 minutes, stirring every minute, until mixture is glazed. Cool 5 minutes. Stir in dried bananas and candies. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container.
- If you can’t find freeze-dried banana chips, just use regular dried banana chips.
- Either creamy or crunchy peanut butter works well in this recipe.
