Ingredients
  • ½ cup of butter
  • ½ cup of brown sugar
  • 4 cups chocolate chex cereal
  • 4 cups rice or corn chex
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tsps cinnamon
  • 1½ cups pretzel M&M's
  • 1½ cups plain M&M's
  • 1½ cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup peanuts
Instructions
  1. Start by melting the ½ cup of butter in a microwave safe bowl. Once fully melted add the ½ cup brown sugar, stir just until combined and place back in the microwave for 30 seconds. Remove and stir until you get a thin carmel like substance.
  2. Next add in the four cups of chocolate chex cereal and four cups of corn or rice chex cereal and use a spatula to combine gently.(You don't' want to crush all the cereal!) In a small bowl, combine the ½ cup of powdered sugar with the cinnamon. Place the cereal mixture into a ziploc bag along with the powdered sugar and cinnamon. Close the bag and shake gently.
  3. Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper and then spread the cereal mixture across it. Sprinkle on the different types of M&M's as well as the peanuts and white chocolate chips so they are distributed evenly. Let sit 30 minutes to an hour just so it hardens up a bit. Store in a Ziploc or other airtight container.
