Chex Peanut Butter and Chocolate Blast

I was looking for some Christmas munchies and came across this Chex recipe at  Everyone loved it.  Usually when you make something like this everyone eats the candies and peanuts and you're left with the cereal.  With this mix, everyone loved the coated cereal and left the candy and nuts. Go figure!

Chex Peanut Butter and Chocolate Blast

6 cups Rice Chex cereal
1 cup white vanilla baking chips (8 oz.)
1 cup peanut butter chips
1 cup M & Ms (I used red and green for Christmas)
1 cup dry-roasted peanuts

Line 2 cookie sheets with waxed paper or foil.  Place 3 cups cereal in a large bowl.  In a small microwavable bowl, microwave white vanilla baking chips uncovered on High about 1 minute or until chips can be stirred smooth.  pour melted chips over cereal in bowl.  Stir to evenly coat.  Spread mixture in single layer on one of the cookie sheets.  Refrigerate 5 minutes or until set.

Repeat the above using the remaining cereal and the peanut butter chips.  Refrigerate 5 minutes or until set.

Gently break up coated cereal into large bowl.  Add candy and peanuts.  Stir gently to combine.  Store in an airtight container.
