Ingredients

  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
  • green food coloring
  • 1 can vanilla frosting
  • 12 cups Chex cereal

Instructions

  • Pour the cereal into an extra large bowl then set it aside.
  • Add frosting to a microwave safe dish then heat in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir frosting until it is smooth (you may need to add another 30 seconds if not completely melted).
  • Heat the white chocolate chips in another microwave safe dish for 45 seconds to one minute. Stir the chips to ensure they are all melted and chocolate is smooth.
  • After both the frosting and white chocolate chips are melted, mix them together with a few drops of green food coloring(Add food coloring to deepen the color or green desired.)
  • Pour the creamy green mixture over the large bowl of cereal, mix it until all of the cereal squares are covered.
  • Pour powdered sugar into a large plastic resealable bag. In addition, when the Leprechaun Chow is well combined add it to the resealable bag. (I use the 2.5 gallon size.)
  • Seal the bag and gently shake it until the powdered sugar covers all of the cereal.
