  • Vanillla Extract



You’ll need are very few you’ll need some rice Chex cereal you also need some smooth peanut butter unsalted butter semi-sweet chocolate chocolate chips.I should say some confectioner sugar and vanilla extract and that is it now.I also had to add a pinch of salt to this just to add a little bit of not only there necessarily like a salty bite but just to offset so much of the sweetness so it works really well but that’s an optional touch if you so choose to do it in a saucepan.I am going to add my butter now my sauce pans off at this point.


So,use the regular like smooth peanut butter that everybody knows and loves so what I do to this now.I’m gonna add a small splash of vanilla extract about a teaspoon or so and then what I’m going to do on medium-low heat.I finally cook this together basically I just want to melt everything together.I want the butter the peanut butter the chocolate all to be a really lovely smooth combination and then when we’re there then we can kind of put everything together and it’s that simple easy and you’re gonna love it so, I’ll meet you back here when this is ready that looks perfect I’m gonna turn it off because I don’t want to burn it now you have to toss all of yours to rice cereal with this mixture and I find that the easiest way to do that is to just do it in a big pot because if,you do this in a bowl I you might not because you’re better than me.


I just literally and they that the series ends up all over the place.I tend to just make such a mess so I use a big pot and it works really well so I’m gonna just take my spatula just to get all of this out because.I find that I can get every single last bit out with my spatula way better than my wooden spoon just make sure you’re using a heatproof spatula and pour this over your cereal and then just give it all a really good mix you wanna make sure that everything that one of those little squares is coated with that chocolate mixture this looks good try not to break too many of them now.I’m gonna just take half of this get off of there.


I’m gonna take half of this and I’m gonna place it in just a resealable bag now,I do half at a time just cuz I find it more manageable,I think it’s easier and I can get everything coated better this way so,I take but you can do it all at once if,you want to I just prefer not to well just take half to this you’re gonna add half of your confectioner sugar okay so about a half a cup okay along with a pinch of salt.I think the salts necessary you might not think so so and then you just carefully mix it.
