Chex Appeal

Do you have Chex Appeal?!?

February is right around the corner which means Valentine's Day is fast approaching. I've got an easy Chex Mix recipe that's great for any party and your Valentine is sure to love.  

You'll Need To Get

9 cups Rice Chex® cereal 
1 cup white vanilla baking chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter or margarine
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup red, white and pink M&Ms
1/4 cup red or pink  sprinkles

Let's Get This Started

First, put all 9 cups of cereal in a large bowl.

Next you'll need to mix the baking chips, peanut butter and butter in a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave uncovered on High 1 minute to 1 minute 30 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth. 

Now you want to pour the peanut butter, baking chips, and butter mixture over the cereal, stirring until evenly coated.

Then put 1/2 of the coated cereal mixture in a 1-gallon food-storage plastic bag. Add powdered sugar in. Seal the bag and shake until well coated. 

After its all coated  spread it on waxed paper or foil to cool, about 15 minutes.

Now while thats cooling stir the M&Ms and sprinkles into remaining cereal mixture (remember you only put half in the bag) and then spread that mixture on waxed paper or foil to cool, about 15 minutes.

Once its all cooled mix both cereal mixtures together and serve.

Store in an airtight container.
