3 cups Wheat Chex
3 cups Rice Chex
3 cups Cheerios
3 cups M&Ms, divided
1 1/2 cups pretzels
1 cup honey roasted peanuts
5 cups white chocolate chips
1 tablespoon vegetable shorting (Crisco), optional
In a large bowl, combine the Wheat and Rice Chex, Cheerios, pretzels, and 2 cups of the M&Ms. Mix evenly to distribute.
Over a double boiler, melt the white chocolate along with the vegetable shorting. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cereal mixture and then stir with a wooden spoon. Mix gently until everything is evenly coated with the chocolate.
Place a length of parchment paper on your counter and spread the Chex mixture evenly on the paper. Sprinkle with the remaining cup of M&Ms. Add sprinkles, if desired. Let the Chex mix cool for about 1 hour. Break into pieces and store in an airtight container.
