Better Than "Anything" Chex Mix

This is decadent and addicting.  The chex cereal is coated in caramel then topped with peanut butter cups and marshmallows which is then drizzled with melted caramel, white chocolate and milk chocolate!                                                                          

This doesn't make very much so I usually do two batches if we are having company!
1 12 oz. box corn Chex cereal
2  cup packed brown sugar
2 sticks butter
1/2 c. corn syrup
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, MINI size or other, chopped up
1 cup mini marshmallows
1/2 cup caramel bits
1 Tbsp heavy cream
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chips

  1. Into large bowl, pour cereal; set aside. Line 1 cookie sheet with foil.
  2. In large pan mix brown sugar, butter and corn syrup and cook until butter is melted and is smooth. Stir in baking soda until dissolved. Pour caramel mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Add marshmallows and stir in.  Make sure mixture is not too hot or marshmallows will melt. Spread on cookie sheet.
  3. Make sure Chex mixture is cool to the touch (so candy doesn't melt.) Evenly sprinkle mini peanut butter cups candy and miniature marshmallows over Chex mixture.
  4. In small microwavable bowl, microwave caramel baking bits and cream uncovered on High about 1 minute or until chips can be stirred smooth. Use a spoon or fork to drizzle over snack. Repeat with chocolate chips. Repeat again with white baking chips. Quickly sprinkle coarse salt over all while candy drizzles are still wet.
  5. Refrigerate until set. Break apart and store in tightly covered container.
