My kids love Chex mix, so at many parties and family events my oldest daughter or I will make a double batch of the nibbly nummies!!
I always thought the Chex squares looked like cute little fishing nets so I made a Chex mix recipe to celebrate the feast day of St. Peter (June 29)! The nets even have fun little fish to accompany them! 🙂
But my kids enjoyed the sweet wiggly “water waves” the best!
St. Peter’s Fishing Nets Snack

  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup (one stick) butter or margarine
  • 8 cups Rice Chex® cereal
  • 1 ½ cup pretzel fish
  • ¼ cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 drop of blue food coloring
  1. Cover a large cookie sheet with waxed paper. 
  2. Add the brown sugar and butter to a large microwavable bowl. Heat on High 1 to 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute. When the butter is bubbly and melted stir in the cereals and pretzel fish.
  3. Microwave on High for 3 minutes, stirring after each minute. Spread on the wax-papered cookie sheet to cool.
  4. In a small microwavable bowl, microwave the white chips on High about 30 seconds or until chocolate can be stirred smooth ( Do not over-cook or it will become thick). Stir in 1 drop of blue food coloring. Drizzle over the snack mix.
    I found it easier to put the melted chips in a small Ziploc bag. Snip a very small hole in the corner of the bag and squeeze the melted chips out through the hole over the mix.
      Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until melted chips is set. Store in airtight container.

St. Peter pray for us!
