It seems that during the holidays you always need a quick treat for the numerous parties, luncheons, potlucks, and unexpected visits. My friend Janet whipped this recipe up a couple of weeks ago during a little gathering and I have been craving it ever since. It is really the simplest recipe, but tastes so amazing. You can add or subtract any ingredients you like to make it how you like it. My favorite part of this recipe: it only takes about 5 minutes from start to finish!
White Chocolate Chex Party Mix
1 (10 oz) package pretzels
5 cups Cheerios (you can use plain or my favorite is the Multi-Grain Peanut Butter)
5 cups Corn Chex
2 cups peanuts (or mixed nuts)
2 (12 oz) packages plain M & M’s
2 (12 oz) packages white chocolate chips
3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
In a VERY large bowl (or two medium bowls), combine the first 5 ingredients. Set aside.
In a microwave safe bowl, heat white chips and oil on high for 60 seconds (you could also melt chocolate and oil in a double boiler pan). Stir and microwave for another 30 seconds and stir until completely melted and smooth (you may need to microwave for a couple more seconds). Pour melted chocolate over cereal mix and stir until all the cereal is evenly covered with white chocolate. Spread cereal mix on 2 large baking sheets (I used cookie sheets) lined with wax paper. Let cool and then break apart into chunks.
Store in an air tight container.
Serves 15-20 people (depending on how much everyone eats!).
