I love this Christmas candy. It’s so hard to stop eating it once I’ve started. B’s mom always makes it at Christmas, so I always associate it with Christmas time, but I suppose you could use any color M&Ms that you’d like and eat this at any time of the year. It’s sweet, salty, and very addicting :)
White Chocolate Christmas Trail Mix

*I divided the below recipe in half, and it still made enough to fill a large mixing bowl.
3 cups Cheerios
5 cups Crispix (I used Chex)
4 cups pretzels (I used mini twists)
3 cups peanuts
16 oz M&Ms
1 1/2 pounds white chocolate
1. Mix the Cheeros, Crispix, pretzels, peanuts, and M&Ms in a large mixing bowl.
2. Melt the white chocolate in a microwave or double boiler.
3. Pour the chocolate over the cereal mixture, and stir until everything is evenly coated.
4. Spread the mixture onto a wax paper- or foil-covered cookie sheet, and cool in the refrigerator until hardened. Break the mixture into chunks and store in an air-tight container.
