  1. Place 1/3 cup of Yellow candy melts in a microwave safe container. Microwave at half power for 30 seconds, remove container and stir. Repeat this process until all candy is melted. (Be sure to check it regularly, candy will burn in the mircowave if you let it cook too long)

  2. Add 2 cups of Chex cereal into a bowl. Once candy is completely melted, pour the melted candy into the bowl with the Chex cereal. Fold until all Chex cereal is coated. (This process may take a few minutes, but the melted candy will coat the Chex cereal)

  3. Place 1/4 cup of powdered sugar in a gallon ziplock bag and add 1 tablespoon of Yellow sugar sprinkles. Mix well.

  4. Remove candy coated Chex cereal from bowl and put into gallon ziplock bag with powdered sugar and Yellow sugar sparkles. Seal the bag and shake well to coat.

  6. Repeat steps 1-5 with but this time melting the Candy Corn. In step 3 add the orange sugar sprinkles to the powdered sugar.
