This isn’t so much a recipe as it is an idea.  Chocolate covered cereal is a treat I make for my little guy as well as for myself.  It works great with Kix, Chex and Cheerios, but I imagine any cereal would taste great prepared this way. I like that it’s easy to make, takes only 2 ingredients (semi sweet choc. chips and your cereal of choice) and can be considered a lot healthier than most chocolate goodies that children like to indulge in.

Here’s how you do it:

Melt as many chocolate chips as you like in a bowl in 15 second increments to avoid the chips from burning.
Once melted, stir in cereal of choice. If there is a lot of melted chocolate, mix more cereal in.
Place chocolate covered cereal onto a cookie sheet or pan lined with wax paper.
Cool in fridge until chocolate hardens.

Break off into pieces and enjoy!
