Snack Mix Squares

  
Snack Mix Squares. A fun snack mix pressed into chewy bars, this treat is popular with kids of all ages.

Something cool my classmates started doing since we are on campus for lab all the time (twice a week currently) is Snack Club. The person in charge sends out a GoogleDoc for people to sign up each lab day to bring a snack. It started in the spring when we had back to back labs on back to back days, so we were essentially on campus 4-5 hours straight with no break. Enter Snack Club! Such a great idea. Here's the first snack I shared with my classmates. 

Makes: 36 servings
Prep/Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:
2 1/2 cups halved pretzel sticks
2 cups corn Chex
1 1/2 cups M&M’s
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
5 cups miniature marshmallows

In large bowl, combine pretzels, cereal, and M&M’s. In large saucepan over low heat, melt butter and peanut butter. Add marshmallows, cook and stir until marshmallows are melted and mixture is smooth. Pour over pretzel mixture; stir to coat. Press into a greased 13x9 pan. Cool until firm, cut into squares.

Helpful Hint:
Grease hands before pressing mixture into pan as mixture is very sticky!
