Perfect DIY Treat + Recipe Printable

December 5th, 2013 § 0

What makes a DIY treat perfect? Well for me, it has to be made from easy-to-find ingredients, easy to make, quick to clean up and taste beyond delicious. This Toffee Chex Treat ticks all those boxes, plus it’s easy to share and it travels well (hello road trip).  To make myself feel better when I’m eating waaaay more than I should of this stuff, I remind myself that the cereal is vitamin fortified and therefore this is a nutritious treat. Yeah, right.

Last year we made and packaged this candy-coated, addictive treat (no lie. this stuff is addictive. beware.) for our neighbors at the holidays.

We used Middy and Bigger Bitty Bags, Colored Tags, Glassine Bags, and Divine Twine for the packaging. We lined the Bitty Bags with the Glassine Bags so the buttery goodness wouldn’t soak through.

It was such a huge hit that I thought I’d share the recipe on handy recipe cards. Just download, print and cut. If you end up giving a batch away, you could attach a recipe card to your packaging. That way it’s a gift that keeps on giving.

Tip: I’ve substituted Crispix for Chex if that is what is on sale. Still turns out great!
Enjoy!

Disclaimer: I did not invent this recipe. I got it off the internet a dozen or more years ago. It is called “School Fuel” on the Chex.com website. I renamed it Toffee Chex Treats because I think it describes it much better. The original recipe calls for chocolate to be drizzled over the treats, but I’m more of a purist and do not like chocolate interfering with my toffee taste. :)
