This no-bake dessert is perfect for a rainy, lazy Sunday like today. We needed a Packer Party dessert to bring along to my in-laws house today, and this was easy to make and take along. Plus, the kids could help make it!

Did you know Chex, gluten free and nut free, makes a Chocolate Chex cereal? It’s amazing. My son (of course) found it at the grocery store a few weeks ago. We noticed the recipes on the back of the box and decided to give them a try. 
My only suggestion for Chex would be to actually just print the recipe on the box, like rice krispies does! I didn’t know the quantities of the ingredients until I looked at Chex’s Pinterest page for the recipe. That’s not convenient. And I also hate pulling out my phone, ESPECIALLY while cooking – that’s gross. 

  • One box of chocolate chex cereal
  • 1 bag of mini white marshmallows
  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup Artisan Kettle Chocolate chips


  1. Coat a 13×9 baking dish with non-stick spray
  2. Using a non-stick sauce pan, melt the butter and the marshmallows. Once fully melted, add the cinnamon and cayenne
  3. In a separate large bowl, pour in the box of cereal. Mix in the melted, seasoned marshmallows into the cereal until well combined. Work fast, it cools quick.
  4. Spoon the cereal into the baking dish and press down to fit.
  5. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  6. While it’s cooling, melt your chocolate. I ended up using a 1/2 cup, not 1/4 cup because I’m OBSESSED with chocolate.
  7. Use a spoon and drizzle the melted chocolate over your cooled cereal bars. Return to fridge.
  8. Once cooled and formed, cut into squares using serrated knife. Enjoy!

Pair this treat with a Porter or peppery red wine. Hopefully we can pull off a WIN! GPG!
Everyone is enjoying the bars and they are very good! There is definitely a zip to them with the added cayenne. If you do not like heat, or these are for kids only, I’d lower the amount of cayenne to 1/4 tsp or none at all! I hope you enjoy. These are addicting!!
Happy Sunday. Enjoy the colors!
