White Chocolate Chex Mix

My boss at Kindercare used to make this every once in a while, which was never often enough!

2 packages white chocolate chips or equivalent white melting chocolate
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
5 cups Chex cereal
5 cups Cheerios (plain or frosted)
1 bag mini pretzels
1 large or extra large bag plain M&Ms
1 large or extra large bag peanut M&Ms
1 jar salted peanuts
1 jar cashews

Mix white chocolate or melting chocolate in the microwave with oil a couple of minutes at a time, stirring occasionally. Add everything else, and mix well. Lay wax paper out, dump mixture, and let dry. Break into smaller clusters.
This really makes a LOT, so I would recommend halving the recipe, unless you have a REALLY large bowl. I got all the ingredients, and made 1/2 the recipe at a time for two different family get-togethers over Christmas. It's SO yummy, AND if you double the Chex, and take out the Cheerios, it can be gluten-free (it's easy to pick out the pretzels).
