Ingredients

  • 1 cup chocolate chips I used white chocolate chips, but milk or semi-sweet chocolate will also work well!
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 9 cups crispy rice square cereal such as Rice Chex
  • 1 ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 ½ cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 cup pastel-colored chocolate candies we used peanut M&M’s, but you’ll want to use regular chocolate mini eggs or plain M&M’s if you want to keep it nut-free
  • ¼ cup pastel-colored sprinkles

Instructions

  • Place chocolate chips and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute; stir until well blended and smooth.
  • Add vanilla and stir.
  • Place cereal in a large bowl. Pour chocolate mixture over top and toss to coat.
  • Once the cereal is coated and has cooled, place in a large zip-top bag. Add powdered sugar to the bag, seal, and gently toss until all of the cereal is coated in sugar.
  • Stir in marshmallows and chocolate candies. Store in an airtight container. Garnish with pastel-colored sprinkles just before serving.

Notes

  • Use any kind of chocolate chips you like
  • You can customize this mix with whatever candy you like, go for your favorite flavors and colors!
  • This bunny chow will store well in a sealed container for up to one week.
