White Christmas Mix

This is a MUST-HAVE at our house during the holidays.  And one I often use for gift-giving. 

It's easy enough to change this up to suit any holiday by using the holiday M & M's - pastels for spring, etc.

I have been asked for this recipe more times than I can count!


It isn't sugary sweet...just lightly sweet, and it has cereal and nuts, so it does have some of the 'lighter' options of this season of sweets.

And I love that you can add more cereal and 'extend' the chocolate if you desire.

Sometimes I sprinkle the coated cereal mixture (before it dries) with chopped candy canes, or have drizzled green and/or red candy melts (melted of course) over the top.


WHITE CHRISTMAS MIX

1 lb. white chocolate (or vanilla almond bark)
Melt in double boiler or microwave according to directions

Mix together:

3 cups Rice Chex
3 cups Corn Chex (or combined - 6 cups crispix cereal)
3 cups Cheerios
2 cups mini pretzels
2 cups peanuts
1 lg. bag of M & M's - plain or peanut (optional)
(We love using the holiday mix)

Pour white chocolate over everything and mix well. (I use a curved spatula scraper).  Let stand until dry and place into gift containers or pretty ziploc bags.

{TIP: MAKE ONLY ONE BATCH AT A TIME SO THE CEREAL WON'T GET CRUSHED WHEN MIXING}
