TIP: Make sure to melt the chocolate slowly, otherwise it may seize up.
TIP: Don’t overmix, chunks in this recipe are part of the fun. You also don’t want to break the Chex cereal.
TIP: Try to lay it out in a single layer as best you can so it can cool and harden and not stick together. If you need to speed up the process, you can put your baking sheets in the refrigerator.
