Chex-mas Cheer {A Recipe}

I've been hit by Christmas fever! 

And so has everyone else. The stores were a disaster this weekend. 
My fault for not going earlier in the week.

Anyway..I spent an evening in the kitchen, made homemade broccoli cheese soup and red velvet whoopie pies (separate post). Then I made some Chexmas Cheer, I want to share this concoction with you here.

There may be a recipe somewhere online just like this, but I honestly didn't use one and just threw it together.

Chex-mas Cheer

2 cups white chocolate chips
1 stick of butter/margarine (1/4 cup)
2 cups Chex rice cereal
2 cups cinnamon Chex cereal
2 cups popped popcorn
1 cup dry roasted peanuts.
Confectioners sugar aka powdered sugar
Dash or 2 or 3 Cinnamon
Holiday sprinkles

First melt the white chocolate chips and butter for 2 minutes stirring every 30 seconds.
Mix cereals, popcorn, and peanuts in large bowl.
Pour melted butter and white chocolate mix over the dry ingredients. Stir to cover all pieces. 
Sprinkle the top with powdered sugar and cinnamon. Mix.
Repeat again with only powdered sugar. 
Add sprinkles to your discretion. The more the merrier.
Pour out on a pan covered in wax paper or foil to dry. 

Package for giving if you haven't eaten all of it yourself. 
I etched PEACE on the side of this jar from the dollar store and embellished with some Christmas colored ribbon. My first ever win on a blog giveaway was this etch all cream from I {heart} Nap Time. This is the first time using it and now I am obsessed.  I quickly realized I should have used the words COMFORT & JOY cause any food or snacks going in this jar will probably provide both.

Anyways...consider yourself warned is delicious. 
Or as Fergie would say, D to the E to the L-I-C-I-O-U-S!
