  • Mise en place! Pour cereal into a large mixing bowl. 
  • In another bowl, heat chocolate chips, butter, and peanut butter in microwave for 30 seconds at 50% power. Stir well. Continue heating on intervals (15 seconds, 50% power), stirring between each interval until chocolate is melted and ingredients are well-mixed. Do NOT overheat chocolate, it will scorch. 
  • Stir vanilla into chocolate. 
  • Pour chocolate mixture over cereal. Mix well. 
  • Pour half of powdered sugar in large Ziploc bag. Add half of cereal mixture. Toss until cereal is well-coated and any chunks are broken up. Lay out on a cookie sheet to dry. 
  • Repeat with remaining powdered sugar and cereal mix. 
  • After mix is dry, toss coated cereal with Christmas colored M&M's. Serve. (Hide any that you want...this disappears fast!)
