Don't you love easy cereal snack mixes? Like this Sweet Cereal Mix found here or the Lemon Buddies Mix I shared here. I love how quick they are to make and the fact that they make plenty for a crowd...or just my hungry family! I thought I would share my version of White Chocolate Cereal Mix (you might also hear of it as "White Trash Mix") as many of you had emailed me about it after seeing it in my sister's bridal shower post here. It really is quick and of course easy to swap our ingredients for what you have in your pantry, me likey that a lot.
We seem to make this mix for any holiday...Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Easter...you name it, it is good any time of the year! To up the cuteness factor I like to use food coloring and mix it in the melted white chocolate chips...so pretty! That's what we did for my sister's bridal shower seen here.
Remember? We colored it pink to match her "Pretty In Pink" bridal shower theme...part of our pink foods buffet table. I love a good theme :-)
How's about that recipe?
You got it, dudes :-)
White Chocolate Cereal Mix
3 cups Chex cereal (any variety)
3 cups Cheerios type cereal
1 cup pretzels
1 cup peanuts (or other nut of your choice)
1 cup M&Ms (or raisins, cranberries, chocolate chips, reese's pieces...the list goes on!)
1 bag of white chocolate chips (we love Ghiradelli brand for it's nice melting)
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Place the white chocolate chips in a small microwave-safe bowl and microwave at 30 second intervals until completely melted. Pour white chocolate over dry cereal and mix until well coated. Pour out onto greased parchment paper and let cool in bite-sized chunks. Enjoy!
Oh, the makings of a great party mix begin with just a few simple ingredients..
I love buying seasonal M&Ms and coordinating this mix with each holiday...who wouldn't want to enjoy this mix year round I say. I like to stock up on the Easter M&Ms afterward on clearance (what a bargain!) because they work well for lots of different themed Spring/Summer parties and Baby Showers, love those pastel colors!
Simple Simon...just mix all the dry ingredients together like so.Melt a bag of white chocolate chips in the microwave and pour over the dry mix until well coated.
Then scoop it up into bowls, bags, or little cups...
