Food Fun Friday- Valentine Chex Mix

Yes, this is the mix you see all over the Internet...
I'm in charge of decorating for the church Sisters and Salads on Saturday.  I plan to make this part of the (edible) decor!
Here is my (doubled) recipe
 9 C Rice Chex Cereal (a whole box)
1 C white vanilla (chocolate) baking chips
1/2 C  peanut butter (smooth works best)
4 TBL butter
2/3 C powdered sugar
1/2 C valentine M&M's
4 Tbl  red and or pink Jimmies sprinkles

*Use a large bowl to dump the chex cereal in.  Microwave the vanilla chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on high for about a minute or more, stirring every 30 seconds until melted and smooth.  Pour peanut butter mixture over cereal and stir until evenly coated.
*In a gallon food storage plastic bag pour in the powdered sugar.  Place 1/2 of the cereal mixture in the bag and shake until well coated.  Spread this on waxed paper or foil.  Cool.
Meanwhile, stir candies and sprinkles into remaining cereal mixture.  Cool
*In the large bowl, mix together both cereal mixtures.  Store in airtight container.

I'll share more about this snack after the luncheon!
