Pour Chex Cereal in a large bowl and set aside.
In a microwave-safe bowl melt chocolate chips, butter, and peanut butter together on high for one minute. Stir and return to microwave, microwaving in 30-second increments until melted together and smooth. Stir in vanilla.
Pour chocolate-peanut butter mixture over the cereal and gently stir to coat. I like to put on a pair of kitchen gloves and use my hands to toss the cereal in the chocolate so I don’t crush it. Place cereal in a large ziptop bag, pour powdered sugar in, seal and shake until evenly coated.
Spread cereal out on to wax paper and let cool completely.
In a large bowl combine cereal, candy corn, Reese’s Pieces, and pretzels. Store in an air-tight container.
