For Topping:

  • 1/4 cup chopped Andes Mints

  • Pour the melted chocolate over the top of the bowl and stir it all together to coat the cereal evenly in the chocolate.

  • Pour the mixture out onto a baking pan.

For Topping:

  • Sprinkle the chopped Andes mints over the top of the chex mix.
  • Melt the candy melts in a small bowl according to the package directions.
