Minion Munch Chex Party Mix

They make a chex mix for just about every occasion these days including a movie premiere. Those of you with young kids or those of you that are young at heart will know that the Minion movie comes out this week.  Seems I have done several movie inspired foods this summer.  I found this recipe in an email last week and knew I would have to try it.  My minions loved it this past weekend and I bet yours will too.
It makes just enough.
 I must admit that I did not know there were these flavors of cereals.  I don't go down the cereal isle that often.  But these were really good.  Might need to start liking cereal again.
 In a microwave safe bowl put in 1/4 cup butter
 1/4 cup brown sugar
 1/4 cup peanut butter.  You can use either creamy or crunchy. Set this aside for a few minutes.
 Now you are going to need a pretty big microwaveable bowl for the cereal part. Add 2 cups honey nut chex.
 2 cups chocolate chex
 2 cups banana nut cheerios.
 1 cup dry roasted peanuts
 Toss them around a little.
 Put the butter mixture in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Stir and if you need to heat more heat for 10 seconds and stir again.
 Now pour over the cereal.
 Stir until all is coated. Place in the microwave and heat on HIGH for 1 minute.
 Take out and stir.  Heat on HIGH for 1 more minute.
 Take out and stir.  Heat on HIGH for 1 more minute.
 Take out and stir.
 Have a parchment or wax paper lined cookie sheet and spread out the mix to cool.
 After 5 minutes add 1 cup dried bananas.  I broke them up a little.
 Sprinkle them over the top.
 Add about 1/2 cup M&M's on top.  I think Reece's Pieces would be good too.  These are mini M&M's.
 The snack enjoy you will. I found these pop corn bowls this summer and had to get them because well it's Star Wars.
Look at that yummy snack mix. Any leftover mix put in an airtight container.
In case you were wondering what a Minion looked like here's one.  Isn't he cute?
