  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (340g) corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups (387g) creamy peanut butter
  • 5 cups Chex cereal, I used Rice Chex
  • pinch salt
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows


  • Line two cookie sheets with parchment. Set aside.
  • In a large saucepan, add the sugar, corn syrup, and vanilla. Bring to a low boil, stirring frequently.
  • Carefully add the peanut butter and pinch of salt and stir until the peanut butter is fully incorporated. Turn heat off.
  • Add in the Chex cereal and stir well, making sure each piece is coated.
  • Pour marshmallows in and stir until evenly dispersed, but not too long. The marshmallow will start to melt, but you do not want them to melt completely.
  • Using a 2-tablespoon scoop, scoop out mounds of the chex mixture onto the cookie sheet. They will not spread much, so you can place them close together.
  • Let sit for about 30 minutes so they can firm up.
  • Store in layers in an airtight container.
