I found the chocolate Chex at Walmart, this snack came together super-easy. Hubby devoured it in a day LOL.

Couldn't find chocolate Chex but I doubled the honey nut. I used white chocolate chips and this was amazing.

I totally echo the sentiments of the previous review!! This is really good!! The only change I made was to use cinnamon Chex in place of the honey nut Chex, my store doesn’t carry the honey nut version. This is sure to become a family favorite. VFE

If I say AWESOME or ADDICTIVE, would you believe me? It is all of those things and more. This recipe is sooooo good. I started to halve the recipe but in the end made the entire recipe and so glad I did. I made no changes. It is beyond excellent. Can you tell that I highly recommend this recipe as I munch on more while typing this? Go as fast as you can and make this recipe but I warn you, you won’t be able to stay out of it.
