I blame the person who first gave me the recipe. (Yes, CN, that would be you!) It is sometimes called White Trash. When people ask me for the recipe, I call it Holiday Mix, cause it sounds, um, classier. Either way, it's addictive. Most years, I make a bunch for gift-giving. I usually end up with too much. What a shame... (heh heh heh)
In case you want to make some, here's the general recipe:
2 cups thin pretzel sticks
3 cups Corn Chex cereal
3 cups Rice Chex cereal
3 cups Cheerios cereal
12 ounce bag of M & M's *
Peanuts as desired (*or skip the plain M&M's and the peanuts and get peanut M&M's)
1.5 pound white chocolate (I use Kroger White Bark)
Mix all dry ingredients. Melt white chocolate in microwave as directed on package. Pour melted chocolate over dry mix and mix it all well. Spread on wax paper to cool. Store in sealed containers.
So easy, even I can do it! I usually use the whole package of white bark, then add a little more of each of the dry ingredients.
