Valentine Chex Mix

I believe I ate my weight in Valentine Chex Mix today.  This is an easy recipe right from the Betty Crocker website.

HapPy VaLenTinE’s DaY!

9 cups Rice Chex Cereal (1 box)
1 cup white vanilla baking chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup Valentine M&M’s (or more)
4 Tbl Valentine sprinkles

Place cereal in large bowl.  In small microwavable bowl, melt vanilla chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on High 1 minute to 1 minute 30 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth.  Pour peanut butter mixture over cereal, gently stirring until evenly coated.

Place 1/2 of cereal mixture in 1-gallon food-storage plastic bag.  Add powdered sugar.  Seal bag; gently shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper or foil; cool about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, stir candies and sprinkles into remaining cereal mixture.  Spread on waxed paper or foil; cool about 15 minutes.

In serving bowl, mix both cereal mixtures.  Store in airtight container.

You can easily make a half recipe…I just decided I might as well use the whole box of Chex!
