This holiday snack mix is the perfect blend of salty and sweet flavors. It's made with pretzels, peanuts, cereal, and white chocolate chips, making it a favorite of children and reindeer everywhere!
10-oz. pkg. mini pretzels
5 cups doughnut-shaped oat cereal
5 cups bite-size crispy corn cereal squares
2 cups peanuts
16-oz. pkg. candy-coated chocolates
2 (12-oz.) pkgs. white chocolate chips
3 tablespoons oil
How to Make It
Combine first 5 ingredients in a very large bowl; set aside. Melt chocolate chips with oil in a double boiler; stir until smooth. Pour over cereal mixture; mix well. Spread mixture equally onto 3 wax paper-lined baking sheets; allow to cool. Break into bite-size pieces; store in airtight containers.
I first made this two years ago for my husband to take as a dish to pass for their department holiday lunch. Last year they begged him to have me make it again. And this year, they want it again.
I've made a few changes to it to suit our personal taste. I use peanut butter filled candy coated pieces, I omit the nuts and I use rice squares cereal instead of corn. It's a fun recipe to play around with!
Might be the most perfect snack mix! The salty-sweet combo is hard to beat. And it makes a lot! The instruction say to use a large bowl and you'll need one. It's great for gifts--and you'll want to give it away because if you have it at your house you'll eat every morsel. Very hard to resist.
