Several years ago another one of our wonderful aunts gave us the recipe to this mix. 🙂 (There must be something about the word “aunt” that implies that they have delicious recipes for you to try!) It’s super easy, and believe us, you won’t be able to stay out of it! 98% of the people that have tried it say it is addictive! We recommend that when you make it, you keep a clean spatula or wooden spoon nearby to chase away those little (or big 🙂 ) fingers that are constantly arriving and grabbing for a taste! (Well, I guess that’s not very loving or kind, so at least post the definition for “Self Control” right over your work area! 🙂 Ha!) It makes a great Christmas gift for friends or neighbors when tied into a pretty plastic bag or wrapped in a tin Christmas box. Enjoy!!!!!
White Christmas Party Mix:
1 lb. white chocolate
3 cups rice Chex cereal
3 cups corn Chex cereal
3 cups Cheerios
2 cups pretzels
2 cups dry roasted or salted peanuts
12 oz. package M&M’s plain candy
Melt chocolate; combine other ingredients and stir. Add chocolate and stir well. Spread (or rather DUMP! 🙂 ) on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container and refrigerator to keep fresh.
Cook’s notes: This recipe is perfect for any season or occasion! Change the color of the M&M’s to suite what you are using it for. (In the spring, use pastel colors, for Christmas, use red and green, etc.)
Cook’s notes #2: We usually make 1.5x the recipe, using a 12oz. box of Crispex instead of the corn and rice Chex, and still only use 12 oz. of M&M’s (it’s sweet enough already :)).
