Chocolate Blobbers! Yummy yummy!

Hello Internet!  Today I am going to teach you one of my secret family recipes!  I know - it's time to get excited!  Our food-craft for the day is Chocolate Blobbers.  Let's get started shall we?

**I forgot to mention - this recipe came into our family via my dear Aunt Becky!**

Here is what you will need:

 That is, one box of Cap'n Crunch Peanut Butter, Rice Krispies (you can use store brand, that is ok), one package of chocolate bark, and one can of Spanish peanuts (aka red-skinned peanuts). I'm pretty sure it's fine to use regular old peanuts, but who wants to take that risk!

The first step is to melt your whole package of chocolate bark in a nice big pot. Stir it occasionally, and don't turn your burner on too high or you'll scald your chocolate.  That wouldn't be good. 

 While it is melting, measure yourself out two cups of each of your cereals.  That's 2 cups of Cap'n crunch, and 2 cups of Krispies.  Not 2 cups of cereal total. (Don't use Total cereal for this recipe - it would probably get soggy.)

 You might as well go ahead and open up your can of peanuts now too.

 Then Voila!  Your chocolate is all melted! Actually, I'm not sure if I should really call it chocolate, since the package calls it "chocolate flavored coating".  It does have cocoa in it though, so that's good enough for me.

 Once it is melted, dump both cereals in it and the whole can of peanuts.

 If you're like me and peanut butter crunch is your favorite, go ahead and add a little extra.

 Then stir it up until everything in your pot looks well coated.

 Oh - I should mention here, you should line a few cookie sheets with waxed paper at the beginning of this process, because now you want to scoop globs of chocolate cereal/peanut mixture onto your wax-paper-lined cookie sheet.  Just make them good snack sized.  My sizing always depends on what spoon I'm using.

Once your cookie sheet is full, stick it into your fridge wherever you have room.  You can probably tell from this photo that my fridge was not prepared for the amount of chocolate blobbers it was going to have to accomodate.

 Then once they have hardened up, take them out of the fridge and chow down!  Yum!

That's it - super easy and quick!  I'm pretty sure this would work well with whatever cereal you want to use, but I like 'em this way, so I've never seen a reason to change.  My family's preferred method of storage is gallon zip-loc bags.  This one is a big favorite with my people, so I'm guessing yours will like it too!!  Enjoy!
