Ingredients

  • 5 cups Cinnamon Toast Crunch™ cereal
  • 1 1/2 cups lightly salted, roasted peanuts
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup real maple syrup
  • 2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips (60% cacao)

Steps

  • 1
    In large bowl, place 5 cups Cinnamon Toast Crunch™ cereal and 1 1/2 cups lightly salted, roasted peanuts.
  • 2
    In 1-quart saucepan, place 1 cup creamy peanut butter, 1/2 cup unsalted butter and 1/2 cup real maple syrup. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until all ingredients are melted and well combined. Pour mixture over cereal; with large rubber spatula, mix to combine.
  • 3
    Place spoonful of cereal mixture into each of 36 ungreased mini muffin cups, filling each to top.
  • 4
    In small microwavable bowl, microwave 2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips (60% cacao) on High in 30-second increments, stirring after each, until melted (about 90 seconds total). Spoon melted chocolate over each snack. Refrigerate 45 minutes.
  • 5
    Remove muffin pans from refrigerator. Remove snacks from muffin cups; place in airtight food-storage plastic bags.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If you have a peanut allergy, use almond butter instead of peanut butter, and swap the peanuts for another nut.
  • tip 2
    Add your favorite nuts for more protein and crunch, like pistachios, almonds or cashews.
