Trail mix Chex treat recipe

I put this recipe together for Valentine's Day but anytime and any occasion would be perfect. 
Bring it to your next party or make it for movie night!

Isabelle Thornton Trail mix treat recipe

4 cups rice Chex mix cereal
1 cup assorted nuts with sea salt
1 cup caramel bits or equivalent in squares
1/2 cup M & Ms
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

In bowl add cereal, M & M, nuts.

Melt the caramel in a separate bowl for 20 seconds at a time in the microwave. When melted add to the cereal and mix well.

When mix is still sticky make little mounts the size of golf bowls using your hands or 2 spoons. Place on parchment paper.

In separate bowl melt semi sweet chocolate every 10 seconds at a time. When melted sprinkle with a fork on the top of the mix mounts. 
let set and place in cupcake liners.
You can use this recipe also as a gift like shown in this Gift for teacher's post
