Chunky Hunky Peanut-Buttery Happy Chow

Ingredients:

3 cups chow mein noodles (the snacking kind, not ones that need to be pre-cooked)

1 ½ cups salted peanuts (I used Lebanese Kri Kri)

3 cups mini marshmallows

3 cups mini chocolate digestive biscuits (or mini Oreo’s/cereal/anything you’ve got on hand)

1 cup chocolate chips

½ cup Skippy Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter (or regular or Nutella will work too)

¼ cup butter

¼ cup shortening

2 cups powdered sugar
 

Directions:

In a microwave safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter.  Microwave for 1 minute and then stir.  Add the shortening and microwave for another 30 seconds and stir again.  If the mixture has remaining lumps, continue microwaving for 10 second intervals, stirring afterwards until smooth and melted.

Combine the chow mein noodles, peanuts, marshmallows, and biscuits in a large bowl and gently toss with your hands to combine.

Pour the chocolate mixture over and using a large spoon gently combine.  Be careful not to break the noodles and biscuits.

Add powdered sugar to a large zip bag.  Spoon in the chocolate mixture.  Close bag and toss until fully coated.

Pour mixture onto baking sheets lined with wax paper.  *If you find some of your mix has clumped up, dust with additional powdered sugar and break apart with your fingers.

Allow to set up on waxed paper until chocolate is no longer melted and hardened slightly.  Store in air-tight container.
