Peanut and Chocolate Chex Bars

4 cups Chocolate Chex cereal  (I couldn't find any chocolate chex, so I used Rice Chex)
1/2 cup salted peanuts
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup M&M's

Butter bottom and sides of a 9inch square pan.  (I love using this pan to divide it up evenly).  In large bowl, mix cereal and peanuts.

In 1 quart saucepan, heat corn syrup and sugar over medium heat, stirring constantly, just to boiling.  Remove from heat: stir in peanut butter until smooth.

Pour over cereal mixture in bowl, stirring until evenly coated.  Stir in candies.  Press firmly in pan.  Cool 1 hour. Store loosely covered.
