Better than sex Chex
8 C chocolate Chex cereal
3/4 C packed brown sugar
6 tbsp. butter
3 tbsp. light corn syrup
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 C Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Mini’s
1 C miniature marshmallows

Pour cereal into a large microwaveable bowl, set aside. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. In a two-cup microwavable measuring cup, combine sugar, butter and corn syrup. Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes until melted and smooth. Stir in baking soda until dissolved. Pour mixture over cereal and stir to coat. Place bowl in microwave and heat on high for 3 minutes, stopping after each minute to stir.
Spread onto cookie sheet and cool. When cereal is cool to the touch, break into bite-sized pieces. Evenly sprinkle marshmallows and mini peanut butter cups over cereal. Melt caramel and cream in 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth. Drizzle over the top.
Next comes the milk chocolate. Melt in 20-second intervals and stir until smooth. Drizzle over the top. Lastly comes the white chocolate. Watch closely so chocolate doesn’t burn. Drizzle over the top. Sprinkle with sea salt while still wet. Place in fridge to set. Break and store in an airtight container.
