Valentine's Day Chex Mix

Like most Chex Mix recipes, this was fun and easy to make.  It combines melted peanut butter and white chocolate and to coat Chex cereal.  The recipe calls for candy-coated chocolate candies, so I chose to use some Valentine-themed peanut butter M&M's I had on hand (hard to get here- I was so excited to see them!).  This turned out sooo good; it's been hard for us to stop eating it!

Valentine's Day Chex Mix
adapted from Chex
9 cups Rice Chex cereal
1 cup real white chocolate chips or chopped white chocolate
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup Valentine's Peanut Butter M&M's
1/4 cup red sprinkles, optional

1.  Place cereal in a large bowl.  In a good-quality saucepan over very low heat, melt white chocolate, butter, and peanut butter together until mostly smooth, stirring frequently.  Pour over cereal, stirring with a rubber or silicone spatula until coated. 

2.  Place 1/2 of cereal in a large covered container (Rubbermaid container or large ziplock bag).  Add powdered sugar, and shake container until cereal is well-coated. 

3.  Meanwhile, stir candies and sprinkles into remaining cereal mixture.  Spread on wax paper to cool and set; about 15-20 minutes.  Combine both cereals in the covered bowl and store covered.
