Witches Brew Chex Mix with Chocolate Brooms [Gluten Free]

Such a fun Halloween treat. It's full of chocolate, sugar + colorful sprinkles. It's a huge hit with kids + husbands.


We are putting together fun little paper gift bags for our neighbors for Halloween this year. There is 5 acres between us all, so dropping off some homemade treats to them will be fun for the kids.


This recipe is so fun + simple. Get your kids in the kitchen - it's such a fun recipe to make with them. So much finger licking + sprinkle taste testing. And the result, is a treat worthy of any Halloween adventures you have this year.


I made this gluten free - use any kind of chex cereal you like. Make it your own!


Witches Brew Chex Mix with Chocolate Brooms [Gluten Free]


5 cups Rice Chex

1/2 cup chocolate chips

1/3 cup sunbutter

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1 cup m&m's

1 cup marshmallows

2 handfuls witches brooms (recipe to follow)


Place the rice chex cereal in a large bowl.


Melt the chocolate chips + sunbutter in the microwave in 25 second increments. Stirring after each time until everything is fully melted + combined. Pour this mixture over the chex. Mix gently with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon until the cereal is coated.


Sprinkle the powdered sugar all over the top of the coated cereal. Again mix gently with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon until the cereal is coated.


Add in the m&m's, marshmallows + witches brooms. Toss lightly to combine everything together.


Serve or store in an air tight container for up to 5 days.


Chocolate Brooms


1 cup chocolate chips

1 teaspoon Organic Vegan Shortening

2 cups small pretzels sticks

1 tablespoon seasonal sprinkles


Arrange a baking sheet tray covered with parchment paper + set aside.


In a small bowl, microwave the chocolate chips + shortening in 25 second increments or until chocolate is melted. Stir until smooth. Pour the chocolate into a tall glass.


Dip the small pretzel sticks, one at a time until they are covered halfway. Place on the parchment paper + top with sprinkles. Let them sit to dry. When fully dry, add them to the chex cereal mix.


Enjoy!
