There is absolutely no doubt about it… I LOVE Rice Chex cereal. I don’t know where my love of it comes from, nor what exactly it is that makes it so attractive to me. They practically NEVER have toys in them, but by not putting them in there at least they don’t disappoint. It isn’t because it is a healthy choice, since we all know I’m not the healthiest eater. I just like it. Deal.
Rice Chex really does not have that storied a history. It is part of the Chex family of cereals made by General Mills which includes Corn Chex and Wheat Chex. It is also an integral part of the popular Chex Party Mix. Personally, I prefer my own demented version of it:
NYCWD’s Chex Mix
- 8 cups of Rice
- 1 cup of chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup of smooth/creamy peanut butter
- 1/4 cup (usually 1/2 a stick) of baking butter butter (with Canola oil)
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- 1 cup of powdered sugar (optional)
In a small saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate chips, peanut butter, and baking butter until smooth and creamy and be sure to stir it often. Take it off the stove and then stir in the vanilla. Pour the mixture over the cereal in a big bowl. Mix it all up. Place the mix and sugar in a plastic food baggie and shake it like a Polaroid picture. Pour the mix out onto waxed paper and let it cool before eating. Don’t want to eat it all in one sitting? Store it in an air tight tupperware container and it’ll usually hold for about 5 days or so.
