3tablespoonsred, white, and blue edible star sprinkles
1cupred, white and blue M&Ms
Place Chex in a large bowl.
Add water to the bottom of a double boiler and place over high heat. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat to maintain a gentle simmer. Add the chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter to the top of the double boiler and set over the simmering water. Cook, stirring constantly, just until everything is melted and smoothly blended together, 1-2 minutes.
Pour the mixture over the Chex in the bowl and carefully stir until the cereal is evenly coated.
Remove half of the cereal and place it in a gallon zip top plastic bag, then sprinkle the powdered sugar over it. Gently shake the bag until the cereal is fully covered. Spread the cereal on a sheet of wax paper to cool, leaving any extra sugar behind in the bag.
Add the star sprinkles to the remaining Chex in the bowl, stir gently to mix, then spread onto another sheet of wax paper to cool.
Place the two cooled mixtures in a large serving bowl, add the M&Ms, and stir together.
