    Take 1/3 cup of the blue candy melts and put in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt it at 1/2 power for 30 seconds, stir. Repeat until melted. (watch carefully as it will burn!)

    Repeat the same process for all the colored candy melts.

    Once done, add in 2 cups of Chex in a bowl. Pour the melted candy melts onto the cereal. Mix until coated.

    Use 1/2 cup of the powdered sugar and put it in a ziplock bag. Add in 1/8 tsp of blue food powder coloring, mix. Do this for all the colors.

    Take the coated cereal and put it into the bag with sugar. Close and shake well.
