Hiya!

If you love chocolate, then you are going to LOVE this Chocolate Snack Mix! It is chocked full of chocolate. I’m talking chocolate cereals, m&m’s, chocolate Teddy Grahams, mini Oreos, and even brownies bites! Oh, and that is all covered in chocolate too! You can’t get much more chocolatey than that. Plus, the brownies are just a tad bit salty so you get a sweet and salty thing going on, YUM. It is a great gift for all the chocolate lovers on your list because it is full of chocolate and it whips up pretty quickly. You can even make it ahead and freeze it until you are ready to give it to someone.

We will start the Chocolate Snack Mix with making the salty brownies. First, grease an 8×8-inch cake pan with cooking spray.

In a saucepan place the chocolate chips and butter.

Bake at 325F for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted 2-inches from the side comes out clean. Cool completely and cut into tiny squares (3/4-inch or less).

In a very large bowl place the cut and cooled brownies, Cocoa Puffs, Cocoa Pebbles, M & M’s, chocolate Taddy Grahams, and Mini Oreos.

Stir everything together so that the brownies don’t try to clump together.

In a microwave safe bowl place the chocolate candy melts, I used Almond Bark.

Melt the candy melts in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until melted. Stir in the canola oil until fully combined.

This Chocolate Snack Mix is so chocolatey, it’s a little bit crazy! If you know anyone who is a chocoholic then this is the best Christmas present you could give them. Just place it in a cute little goodie bag and it’s ready to go. I found these goodie bags on Amazon and they work great! They are just a bit bigger than the average goodie bag so it is easier to get more in and not look like you’re being stingy. These bags also come with ribbon for tying the bags shut instead of the customary twist-tie, which makes it look a lot nicer too. Anyway, you will surely love this Chocolate Snack Mix!
