White Chocolate Snack Mix-Family Recipe Friday

White Chocolate Snack Mix, Christmas 2010

White Chocolate Snack Mix is a favorite treat of my children, Kirsten and Travis.  I first tasted this when I was substitute teaching many years ago.  I asked for the recipe, but the woman who made it wasn't one for sharing recipes.  She said it was easy to make, you just add the ingredients and cover with chocolate.  OK, I should be able to figure this one out.  So, I did.  The recipe below is the one I adapted.

White Chocolate Snack Mix
1 cup cheerios
4 cups Rice Chex
1 cup pretzel sticks, or holiday pretzel shapes
1 cup M&M’s, holiday colors
1 cup peanuts
1 cup cashews

Melt 2 cups white chocolate wafers in double boiler.  Spread melted white chocolate over mixture.  Stir gently to coat.  Cool in freezer.  Stir as it cools to prevent clumping.  Break up and enjoy!

I have made variations of this for other holidays:  peanut butter chocolate wafers, toffee peanuts, harvest colored m&m's, etc.  I will be making a double batch to enjoy this year.
