Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Mix Recipe

A few months ago I received a cookbook for review called 250 Best Meals in a Mug by author Camilla V. Saulsbury and published by Robert Rose Books. This cookbook contains 250 easy recipes that can be made in a mug or large measuring cup in your microwave oven! I love this book and use it all of the time to whip up delicious soups, meals, breakfast and snacks for my family.

Today I wanted to share a recipe with all of you from page 58 in the book and it only uses 4 basic ingredients that you probably already have in your home. If not, all of them are found in your local grocery store. You can purchase this fabulous cookbook directly from Robert Rose. I highly recommend it!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Mix

1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 Tbsp. creamy peanut butter
1 Tbsp. butter
1 cup corn, rice or wheat cereal squares

Note: We used Rice Krispies instead of the author's recommendations.

Line a dinner plate with waxed paper or aluminum foil. You will be using this surface once you have everything prepared.
In a large mug (I used a large two cup measuring cup) microwave the chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter on high for 45 seconds. Stir. Microwave on high for an additional 15 to 45 seconds or until everything has melted and is smooth when stirred.

Immediately stir in the cereal until it has been well-coated. Spread mixture onto your prepared surface (see above). Refrigerate for 20 minutes or until firm. Break into small pieces and store in an airtight container or snack bag.
