Salty, sweet, fast, easy, addictive. This recipe for minty chocolatey coated cereal is a major crowd pleaser!
Prep Time 1 hour


  • 9 cups rice wheat, or corn Chex cereal *see note
  • 1 cup 180g non-dairy white chocolate
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil or a non-dairy butter
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 teapoon vanilla
  • a few drops of natural green and blue food coloring
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar for coating
  • 2/3 cup about 120g semi-sweet dark chocolate (non-dairy)
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil


  1. Melt oil (or butter) and white chocolate in a medium sauce pan slowly over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, peppermint, food coloring, and salt. Pour cereal into a large bowl and pour mixture over it. Use a large rubber spatula to carefully mix and coat all of the cereal pieces.
  2. For the powdered sugar coating you can either use ziplock freezer bags and shake with powdered sugar until coated or just pour it on top and toss gently until coated.
  3. After cereal is coated with powdered sugar, spread it out on a baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper and melt the dark chocolate and coconut oil in a double boiler over medium heat until smooth. Drizzle it over the coated cereal pieces then allow it all to dry for at least 1 hour.
  4. Store in an airtight container at room temp.

Recipe Notes

If you cannot find Chex cereal this recipe can be made with Quaker oatmeal squares cereal instead or you can even try popcorn. Also, obviously don't use wheat chex if gluten free.
