Tiramisu Snack Mix

Here’s one of the super easy recipes that tasted really good. We can’t stop snacking on it! I did make some changes to make the 2nd batch I made which I think came out better. You can find those changes at the end of the post.

Spread onto waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate until set. Store in an airtight container.

I made the first batch as the directions said and it didn’t look as pretty as I had hoped to so the next batch I made I melted all of the chocolate, shortening and espresso together then tossed the Chex in. I also mixed in some Amaretto and I think that took it to a whole new level which I loved.
