Back To School Snack Mix

This year my son is heading to First Grade. Lunch time for them is very early so they have snack in the afternoon. While looking through my Parenting magazine, I came across the recipe for this snack mix and decided to give it a try. I like the fact it had peanut butter for some protein.
Back to School Snack Mix
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
3 cups Honey Nut Chex cereal
1 cup plain Cheerios
1 cup peanuts
1 cup pretzels
1 cup M&Ms
Heat oven to 350. Combine butter, peanut butter, cinnamon and vanilla and microwave for 35 to 40 seconds and stir until smooth.
Mix cereals, peanuts, and pretzels in large bowl. Pour butter mixture over and toss well to coat.
Pour into line baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes, stirring halfway. Let cool and toss in M&Ms.
Store in containers.
